Keep up with us

Leaving

Give mother a hug 
Father a kiss
The time has come
We have talked about it 
Many times before
But the time is now
Fake a smile 
And turn away
Start alone
I must leave everything I know
Into a world 
One I do not understand
Hoping to find out 
Who I truly am
Letting go of their hands
I am off
Not looking back
This is my time my journey
I have to do this my way
I walk in a girl
I will walk out a woman
Ready to face the world
