You
are 18
Driver’s license in your pocket, Waiting
for the 6 balls to determine
Your fate
Off to college
Signing legal documents
Painting your body, regretting
Later the engraved meaning
Feeling
like an adult
but no alcohol

You
are 21
Everything on your palette
Alcohol taking control now
Hungover
Sipping into your morning routine

Yet
Where is the maturity?
Being possessive of friends
Competing over GPA
and Leadership
Driving people away
Faking the open-mindedness
in crowd about diversity
When
Will the breeze of maturity come?

Age
Can’t Grant you
Maturity
