Growing Up

The students celebrate, they all cheer
The hats fly up into the sky
They’re heading off into the world
I look on; I sigh

They’re fly off to grab their chains
To be responsible, pay bills
Work, the ‘freedom’ to work
It gives me the chills

Adulthood is freedom,
They shout
Being responsible
Is what it’s all about

Man was born free
As a child
As an adult
They are in chains

Only childhood is true freedom
Freedom to work is no freedom at all
Yet everyone rushes to their chains
Eagerly awaiting their curtain call
