I'm at this weird point in my life.

I can make choices that won't have lasting consequences.
Yet at the same time, I am making some of the most important decisions that affect my future.

I'm young enough to skip town when annoyed with conforming to the pressures of those around me.
But old enough to be tied down by commitments and responsibilities.

I can blame my sudden urges to chalk-mural the world around me on the carefree spirits of adolescence.
However, those spirits must be subtly muted in the maturity of this thing I hate to call "adulthood".

I can give my heart to people whom I know will simply break it.
Whilst still looking for the one that will guard it for eternity.
I've been schizophrenic with my feelings lately.
One second I'm twitter-patted.
The next, I'm annoyed.
I'm happy.
Then I'm sad.
It makes sense,
then it's a mess.
It's very paradoxical, this life.

But I count my blessings.
And when it comes down to it, the Lord gives me exactly what I ask for.
Sometimes I just find myself asking for the wrong things.
So I really can't complain.
