Consequences

Gone are the days of overconfident youth
The free pass of the beautiful young girl
The games you used to play
The time you used to have
Late crazy nights of finding out who you are
Writing off mistakes as an unintended consequence

Consequences are real now
Love is real now
As is everything else
You’re supposed to have it all together
Stand up on legs no longer shaking
Be ready to show off this success you slid so easily into
Like comfortable bed sheets on a cozy night
