The Graduate

Like all my millennial kindred
I yearn for independence
And a cause, a reason to work hard
A passion that consumes me
And that’s more then just me

But I’m of age and still a child
I’ve wanted for nothing so I want everything
I guess if I’m lost
My redemption lies in pain
Stimulated by an uncaring mentor
Who can teach me survival

But my needs are simple
And my comfort an easy reach
Muting the craving, the hunger, the itch
The fire in my full belly
