today’s the day, a different life begins,
today i become a grown up
today i become accountable to someone other than myself, my parents, my friends and my family,
today i am accountable for more than my grades
today i become accountable to the world
to the future,
to the possibility that life has to offer.
my job is to show-up
wide eyed, willing and ready,
for what i don’t know.
to take on life.
to take on love.
to take on the responsibility and possibility.
my friends, our life begins.
