Eighteen is a time of liberation.
Intentions now begin to swell to song.
Given the glory of one's aspiration,
How can one's life story turn out wrong?
There is a passion in one's preparation,
Eager for the hills that make one strong,
Eager for the sense of each sensation,
Not knowing what fair fate might come along.
