young adulthood

That tough part of someone’s life

When they need to spread their wings

The most crucial time in life

To learn about skills, achieve typical things


Some need time to adjust

Entering the young adult stage

Given required guidance, not thrust

Or abandoned without advice from others their age


Give one another the chance to live and learn

Let us be human beings

Being human means the chance to earn

The right to express our feelings


Developmental and psychological milestones flourish

As young adults grow and value knowledge

Discover life’s meaning and be encouraged

To find confidence and solace


Life as a young adult involves daily challenges

Which may take years to overcome

The right paths and passages

Lead to catching up with everyone


Mature gradually, not too fast

Living each day as though it is our last
