Just Slow Down

I read your status on facebook wall
Saying you can't wait to leave it all
Off to college and live your dreams
But things aren't as easy as it seems.

Soon you'll have to find your own place
A cozy little home with just enough space
But when you look around, you'll start to frown
It doesn't feel like your old hometown.

Six months can go by pretty fast
I know you'll reminisce in the past
Of the times you spent with family and friends
Before your senior year came to an end.

I know you're grown now, guess its just me
Maybe I'm just acting a bit too silly.
But when you take a good look around
Please, for a bit, just slow down.

-Dedicated to one of my friends going off to college soon. I'll miss you-
