Eighteen, what does that really mean.
Now that I am eighteen,
I can make my own rules.
Able to date now,
Make my own money.
Pay my own bills.
Come and go when I please.
Grown is what I am now.
Able to vote & say know.
My mom always rebutted with the comment.
Girl, coming of age means.
Many things, and now you are about to find out.
Remember my final words: It takes.
A person a long time to know where, she came from and where she is going.
Age is just a number.
You are defined by your actions and your morals.
