Fifteen

by Casey Warner

 

Today Iím fifteen

Yesterday I was thirteen

Tomorrow Iíll be seventeen

 

Time goes on

Itís almost cruel

Taking our lives

one day at a time

Itís hard to believe

that every new day

we come closer to the end

 

At fifteen

we want to skip time

but when we get older

we canít press pause

or slow down

 

Life is not a game

You canít restart

canít win
pause

cheat

or play on easy

 

Life is a challenge

not a game

You canít quit

We must press on

Life is a challenge

when you are fifteen
