Caution: Adulthood Ahead! By Toni L.A. Cross

Hue of melancholy
Oozing from fresh pores
Warning signs of folly
Showing forth in scores
Dizzy from advice that's sound
A heart chasing its own tail
Dreams of youth abound
Everything reasonable grows pale
Sink in respectability
Like a well used corduroy chair
Wish for the tension of instability
To flaunt with reckless flair
Settle down- let impatience resign
Grow up to lose your mind


Note: This poem was written with the rhythmic qualities of an English Sonnet, but obviously, due to subject matter and style, it isn’t a sonnet.

My name is Toni Clegg, and I was raised on a farm in the far north of the United States. I love to read and write and I hope to use those hobbies in a greater way in the days to come. One of my passions is using whatever influence I have to make a difference in the world.
