I’m at war with my age

by August Rose Crothers

I’m twenty two years old.
Have I wasted twenty two years
or am I just beginning to reach my full potential?
I’m twenty two.
Should I be at the club?
Should I be getting engaged?
Should I be starting a 401k?
I constantly feel at war with my age.
Is where I'm at in life okay?
On my worst days I tell myself I’m a failure.
And at my best I reflect on how far I’ve come.
How do I find a balance
of motivating myself to be better
but to also be proud of how much I’ve done?
How do I get myself to believe
I’m exactly where I should be?
