TITLE: The Cult Of Being Adult

Have you ever counted,
The stages of growing up?
Have you ever taken,
Time to stop and think?

Most of life is full of,
Drinking the ďadultĒ cup.
Then once you have arrived there,
Itís will you swim or sink?

Itís like youíre taken captive,
By those years without delay.
Youíre forced into a lifestyle,
Of caring for yourself.

You wake up every morning,
Then go to earn your pay.
The things you really want to do,
Just end up on the shelf.

You try to make the most of life;
That ladder to the top.
It takes you years to get there,
And then youíre all worn out.

For many who achieve it,
Is when their life will stop.
And then they have forgotten,
What life is all about.

So the answer is to focus,
With your heart, soul and mind.
Instead of looking inward,
Itís time to look above.

Itís only through Christ Jesus,
Contentment you will find.
Then knowing youíre forgiven,
Forever in His love.

Your eight verses sum it up most properly: Christ is the way!

Lovely rhythm and wisely written. I enjoyed this so much!

Exceptional grammar and spelling; you ARE a writer.

Blessings!

Real Adults keep their eyes on the Throne. He said we must be like little children looking to Him! Maturity is knowing who He is, and who we are!
