I wake each morning,
keen to tic an item off
the unending list.

The hours fly by,
the list does not diminish.
My nap time draws near.

I wake from my nap,
my daily list taunts me still.
My snack time draws near.

Cookies and TV,
I’ll never complete the list –
eh, life is too short.


About Adulthood in Disguise

This series is intended to highlight the ridiculous antics of adulthood – a milestone we all wanted to reach as quickly as we could. Unfortunately, the reality of adulthood is not the endless cake and cookie feast we all believed it to be. It turns out, there are a lot of monthly bills and no one cooks you dinner!
