Junior Year - Not Yet

Written by: Anna Daavettila

The promise of a greater world beckons and calls
But not yet.
Flying could be so easy, like waking up after a long sleep
But not yet.
We must carpe every diem and noctem, sucking the very essence out of our existence
But not yet.
For now we must wait, watch, and learn
Ready in the shadows, prepared to pounce onto adult life
Like a not-so-patient lion finally capturing its prey
But not yet.
