the problem with growing up
do you remember fruit roll-ups?
i do, too
though that is completely irrelevant
(and i think they were called fruit by the foot, now that i think about it)
i guess im avoiding talking about serious problems
because i don't even know how to solve them
i am my own jigsaw puzzle with a jugular
so i cant mess up
do you remember ever choosing your first grade teacher?
or whether or not to learn your timestables?
i never had a choice in that
i was never really informed
but i conformed myself to their insanity, anyway
do you remember choosing what clothes to wear to school?
do that, at least
but now i'm staring at a list of choices that adults get to make
and i realize
i never really learned how to think for myself
i never learned to make decisions
