Now I Know
Jose Paulo Tolentino 

Seven months felt like seven year
And now I face my greatest fear
Why before I could never wait
but now I know the heavy weight.

In a strange world, a mad city,
 it is tough to be an adult
you take responsibility
  to bear frustration and insult

There are days I would like to die
life is not pretty as it seem
Leave this and what do I redeem?
Many I have learned is just a lie

   they say I should create a goal
 Love and life is what you make it
but somehow it just could not fit
all I have is a hollow soul 

From here I don't know where to go
being an adult, now I know.
