Poetry Friday: Good Luck, Kid by Joseph

You're used to looking around to see
How everybody else is doing it
Now it seems like we're all losing it
You read the paper, it's all bad news in it
The train's off the tracks, boat's capsized
Don't know the left from right
And you think, "How am I gonna do this?"

You thought you'd know the way, but now you don't
You thought you'd have the answers when you'd grown

They handed you the keys
The driver's seat is yours now
There's nothing left to lean on
You're the queen from here on out
No time for doubt
Good luck, kid.

- selected lyrics from Good Luck, Kid by the band Joseph

Listen to the song.
