Oh, how the times have passed!

I was just 16,

Thinkin' bout graduating high school and looking forward to university.

Oh, how times have passed! 

I remember being 10 years old and dreaming about being 20.

Imagining the freedom of adulthood...

Oh, how the times have passed!

It was only yesterday that I turned 17,

but now I'm turning 21 and wondering what I've done with my life so far.

I'm not so sure anymore, for in just one blink of an eye, I'll be turning 30.

Oh, how the times pass by once you hit your 20s!

    I think it's the percentages.
    Your only young.

      True, I am only young, but that is a for-now thing. With how fast time passes, you wonder what your next years will look like if you know what I mean.

        Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
