Grow up

Grow up, feel the pain
of labouring in vain

Hear the ticking of the clock
growing faster, keen to mock

See the leaves fall from the tree
wondering how long spring will be

Believe that you just can't win
with your spirit lost within

Chase deadlines until your dead
where once you chased dreams instead

Toady...The last 2 lines I felt and can relate to very much..however I do hope that despite all the angst that we all endure, we can sometimes chase dreams right until our time is up!
