The Age of Fear

April 27, 2016

PROMPT: [Insert Age]

I have been on this Earth for 17 years to this point,
School. Work. Sleep. Repeat.
I see the same people every single day,
Live the same repetitive routine.
Nothing ever changes... until I think about the future.
The time when I get to leave this little town and see the world.
Meet new people,
See new things,
Actually experience the world.
The future and all it contains beckons my name,
yet there is something inside of me that is scared.
What if I don't fit in?
What if I can't find friends?
What if....?
But what if I live the life I have always wanted to live?
A life full of adventure, success, and happiness.
And then I realize that the fear is worth the change,
Because at the age of 17,
All I need and want is a little change.
