adulting

the key is to write it down
when it's fresh in my mind
an uncomplicated life I lead
doesn't stop me from hitting
a brick wall from time to time
too many heavy burdens we carry
too often it's not even our own shit
get to thinking about
some of the complicated lives
my friends lead
the secrets we keep
eat at us a little more
with each new day
and it all used to be so simple
some think this is all part
of what we now call adulting
the truth is some of us are just better
at keeping it together
better at leaving the day behind
never forgetting we aren't expected
to be perfect every second of the day
just need to be the best version of ourselves
and never give too much of ourselves away
