wishing it away.

You enter kindergarten wishing it away for primary school. You think, They have the better playground.

You enter primary school wishing it away for middle school. You think, I’m too cool for the little kids.

You enter middle school wishing it away for high school. You think, There will be much more freedom.

You enter high school wishing it away for college. You think, No more tyrannical parents!

You enter college wishing it away for young-adulthood. You think, I’ll never have to study again.

You enter young-adulthood wishing it away for adulthood. You think, I hate being at the bottom of the ladder.

You enter adulthood wishing it away for midlife. You think, I just want a family.

You enter midlife wishing it away for retirement. You think, I can’t wait to be an empty nester.

You enter retirement wishing it away for the older days… but you can barely remember them.
