Growing Up Suddenly

We grew up,
Too suddenly.
We were never given an opportunity,
To just be ourselves,
To play around,
Without care,
And without abandon.

Harshly,
Responsibilities
And other obligations,
Were thrust,
Upon our way.

Our shoulders,
Were too tender
To shoulder,
All those expectations.
We just hope,
That we did our best.

Time will judge us justly,
We hope.
