Poem: Set Patterns

18,

Off to college.

22,

Finish college.

26,

Settle down.

28,

Become a parent for the first time.

29,

Get a mortgage, own a car.

35,

Be a parent to three children.

If that’s what someone wants,

Fair enough,

In complete support of them.

But doesn’t it seem dull how our lives are planned to such detail

By society,

These set patterns,

These social constructs.

Life’s for living,

If one knows everything that comes next,

Is that living

Or slowly dying?
