Premature Adulthood

Little children everywhere
tingle with excitement,
on the quest for premature adulthood.

Simply being a kid,
too much work,
an unbearable experience.

Running around freely,
leaves a sour taste,
the confines of a room work wonders.

A “do whatever I want” mentality,
no repercussions, parents take a back seat.
The timer is speeding.
