Grown Up’s.

What does it mean to grow up
Does it mean you have a job and a wife
A hand to hold and a dog to pet
Does it mean your house is pretty and your lawn well trimmed
Your bills paid on time and a church group on Wednesday nights 
I think growing up is
Learning how to love yourself even when you are falling apart 
I think growing up is building a passion with your heart as the artist
And 
Seeking sensation instead of stability
You cannot take your house to heaven
Your job will mean nothing if it didn’t make a difference
Settling is the biggest temptation in the world
Please
Resist it
