poem for week two of poetry challenge
Back in the day

Back in the day
When I was a young man
I had to face a decision
Where to go to college
What to major in
In preparation for choosing
A path forward for my life
And I had no clue
Where the future would take me
All I knew was that I had to get going
Get away from my dysfunctional toxic family
And in the end
I ended up in three colleges
Before I finally settled down
And launched my adult life
Never looking back
But never forgetting
Where I came from
And who I was
And that decision
Made all the difference
As I stroll forth
Into the world
As a young man
