Making My Mind Up

Day 20 of Napowrimo and the prompt is to write in the voice of another family. I’ve chosen my daughter Ashleigh, age 13. Who in year 8 is making her GCSE choices.

Making My Mind Up

Choices choices
What to chose
The teachers say
It’s a big deal
That we must pick
Our true career
Picking picking
GCSE’s
I Want to make
The right decisions
I’ve Got to take
The right path
The Trouble is
I’m only 13
I don’t know
What I’ll do
Tomorrow
Let alone
For the rest
Of my life
Pressure pressure
On my shoulders
Weighing down
Like massive boulders
Choices choices
What to chose
Got to get it right
Don’t want to lose
