Day One #Poetry

The nerves kick in

Pacing the bland tile floor

Adding color to it with my vibes

Today was the day

Go into the world

Time to grow up

Signing that dotted line

Means I’m an adult

The small apartment is my haven

Unpacking boxes

Making the empty space come to life

Grabbing my toothbrush, I smile

Remembering my mother’s words

“You can do anything, but keep a toothbrush and clean underwear, you don’t want to conquer the world without things that remind you tomorrow’s a new day.”
