Leaving the nest

Sharply turning, fingernail chipping, anxiously pacing,
the time to leave the nest is fast approaching,
Distortion of reality, confusion and despair,
Where the mother-child bond will inevitably tear,

You want to leave- become your own person without loosing sight of how far you've come,
To appreciate all that has been given to you but realize your independent life has just begun,

Always welcome to come back to the safety and comfort of your childhood home,
Yet never will experience the joy of living with a family- now that you're alone,
For better or for worse, you have to take responsibility,
to stand up to this disoriented world and earn your dignity,

Enjoy the present whilst building your own future,
Your mother will no longer be there- but will always nurture,
Look back at the past and learn to carry on,
Your siblings will no longer stay young one day they'll also be gone.

I realized,time changes people-on that we should not venter,
your family will forever be your rock, your centre,
The moments you make time for, even though you're miles apart,
The moments that you'll always remember,
Those will be the treasured moments you'll hold so tightly in your tender heart...

    For better ''of'' for worse may be or for worse,! It's a sad moment the leaving of home and parting,searcging a new life may be! thats the way life goes;nothing will stay the same,! Good luck .
