Being the Outlier of This Equation Called Life

Too young to be worried, too old to be contemplating.

Young enough to be denigrated, old enough to be held accountable.

“You still have time to figure it out,” they say.

“What are you doing with your life?” I’m asked.

Surrounded by mothers with the world weighed on their shoulders.

Students yearning to dig all the promised treasure they can find.

Expectations too low and standards set high.

Being the outlier of this equation called Life.
