Cum Laude Comedown
I have a diploma now,
two part-time jobs, a pile of bills
along with a bevy of confidantes.
The classroom tried to mold me,
life lessons strengthened me,
experiences made me what I became.
They taught me how to be an adult
and sent me on my real world way,
but they never taught me how to grow up.
