Problems With Beginning Life

So now I'm eighteen.
I'm out on my own.
So many things to see.
So much to do.
Yet I am lost.

Where do I go from here?
How do I find my way?
I'm so lost.
I don't know where to begin.
I can't find my calling.

There are so many problems.
I need someone to help me.
Who do I turn to?
My parents?

What will I do?
The same question is asked
over and over.
My answer is always the same.
"I don't know."

Mother says college.
Father says military.
Brother says nothing.
I'm just lost.
What will I do?

What if I fail?
What if I'm not happy?
What if I'm lost forever?
I need someone to help me.
Where do I go now?

I was never really on
my own at that age since I had just graduated high school at that age.
Yet I will be on my own someday I'm just not ready yet for that. This poem amazed me yet it is an excellent read. I love it Jennifer. Keep up the Excellent Work.
Keep Smiling and Keep Writing too^_^.

Reaching such an important age is difficult, but at the same time, it's important to tell others to try and make their plan before becoming legal adults. Even though trying to make a decision when you're still young can be difficult, nowadays, it's almost necessary.

Good work on this one!

When my son first entered university, he was overwhelmed. He didn't know how he would pay for it and how he would be able to finish. I would always tell him, "Just take baby-steps". He is now finished and working.
Whatever we do in life, try not to take big chunks, (you could choke), just take baby-steps, look for opportunities, and eventually you will find your way.
