Quick little poem about the fast moving time before graduation that I can't seem to get a hold of and the mixed emotions that are being created by said time.

These Days

They ask us questions we cannot answer

They tell us things we cannot believe

These Days

They say to us"wait"

They call back to us "hurry"

These Days

They tell us we are not good enough

Yet they willl still call us overachievers

These Days

It seems as though time is fleeting

This seems like this because it is true

These Days

I don't want to leave this

But they're pushing me right out of their door

These Days

I want to press pause and rejoice

Though I am forced to run after the marathon

These days

They are building bridges

Though I wish to burn every single one down

These Days

My emotions are mixed

They are mixed with the need to leave and the desire to stay

These Days

They ask why I would want so badly to leave and I cannot say

But If I don't leave now I may never get away.....
