Independence and Fireworks: Holiday as a Young Adult

american flag may 5

Fireworks light up the sky

it has been a beautiful day

having shown my independence

in a unique way


For the first time

decisions made by me

living in my first place

away from immediate family


Such freedom

the bed can be left unmade

clothes left in the floor

no chores to trade


First holiday

there is barbeque on the grill

few friends at my new place

fun times to chill


An exciting adventure

adulting is a challenge indeed

celebrating the birth of our country

trying to succeed


As the fireworks shine bright

on this beautiful night

independence in my first place

inhaling freedom in the light
