Age is Just a Number

I know that 21 is young,
But inside,
I feel so old.
I've always had to be the adult.
I've never felt my age.
My friends,
Have no problems cutting loose.
They tell me to relax.
I envy their ability to go with the flow.
But too much is at steak for me.
They pay for courses they don't like,
Trial by error.
While I'm,
Planning for retirement.
I know I'm only 21
But age is just a number.

    I know how you feel...When I was 18 I felt I was 23.When I reached 23 it felt like 30.So after 30 I stoped keeping track.But like you said "age is just a number".Nice write! :o) Thanks for stopping by to read some words of my life. :o) It feels good to get them out.
