How far have I come from a year ago?
What have I seen and done?
Did I do anything worthwhile?
Or did I waste 12 months in fun?
They smile and say Im a year older now
And ask me if that’s how I feel?
But I feel younger than ever before
Growing up just doesn’t seem real
A year ago 19 was too far away
To think and worry about
I just wanted to enjoy being 18
To laugh and live and shout
But that was a year ago
And now people are looking at me
Asking if I feel different now?
Asking if I feel 19-ly.
Im not quite sure how I feel
Now that I am 1 year older
1 year away from a long ago childhood
1 year wiser, stronger bolder
But at the same time a year ago
I was a year away from being all grown up
And now that it’s a year from then,
I still feel sort of stuck
Am I grown..or still a child?
I cannot tell for sure
I just became used to being 18
And now must act a year more mature
So no I don’t feel older or 19 like,
Not more than I did before
But I will hurry and celebrate it now,
Before 20 comes knocking at the door!
