Responsibility spooked me like a ghost,

Terrified of my own accountability.

 

Discipline dreaded my conscience,

Realizing that punishment was mandated.

 

Duties frightened my lazy mind,

Knowing that obligations had to be fulfilled.

 

Waking up to a scary reality,

That I had to grow up and become serious.

 

The route to adulthood was exhausting,

Yet a rewarding task filled with excitement.
