Current Mood: awake
Current Song: 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.

This is just right for my grandson, of course all of us, too. He's just off to college, probably wondering why he was handed the keys! Love the rhythm!

That's exactly the audience I was thinking of - people heading off to college or moving to a new place on their own!

just the poem

This is just the poem for my daughter - a college senior. She says she is not grown up and not ready for the keys, but here they come. I think she's more ready than she knows.
