What Goes Around Comes Around

What Goes Around Comes Around

By Katherine Horgan

It’s quite baffling how young people want everything

until they grow up and have to have it,

If only we could just enjoy the game

And keep rolling the dice 

To pass go and collect 200

Until it’s necessary to pay the income tax,

And fighting over which little piggy is going to the market 

Until they all just want to stay home,

Being friendly with everyone around 

Until your first best friend is just 

somebody that you used to know

And you are left to just let it go,

Why does time move so fast from learning how to 

One two buckle my shoe

To falling head over heels

Until you break a leg

Which just adds insult to injury,

And sometimes we do everything we want

disguising it as as craving the best of both worlds

When really we are trapped in a indecision epidemic

Of empty brained everything addicts

Who can’t give

But just take take take,

Where an act of genuinity will appear once in a blue moon

But why would anyone do what is right

When it’s easier to just cut corners?

And everyone is out there saying 

I promise that you’ll never find another like me

As they put all their effort into being a carbon copy

Its crazy how people want to fit in so badly

Yet be not like the other girls

With the mindset of 

If I was you, I’d wanna be me too,

Until they get the taste of their own medicine

And get shocked back into reality 

Where none of that even matters 

Because it’s not just a phase,

So to address the elephant in the room 

Maybe we should all stop trying so hard 

To be the best person that we can be

When we aren’t even our own person,

Because even if you do all the right things

It may be for the wrong reasons

So no matter how fancily you roll the dice 

You might still get snake eyes
