Ready for More – Poem

As the sun dips below the horizon
a bit earlier each day, I'm thinking

of how easy it is to watch the seasons
go by from your window, time flying

by and us dragged along on its coattails.
When will it be time to break out

our routines, see new sections
of the sky, and embrace adventure?

I want to see new places, not just
project them in my head while reading

a book. It's almost time to grow up, 
they say, as if growing up is a singular 

event with a beginning and end,
and we're all ready for the next step,

to hop on a plane and never come back.

I hope you enjoyed this piece! Just some short thoughts as a high school senior working on college apps and endless choices. Feel free to leave feedback in the comments. Stay safe and healthy out there.
