Better to be Adult or Child?

From pillar to post
The sunshine bounces
Through the bars of my prison
I’ve locked myself in
Chained to a desk
When I want to go out
Be like a child and play
Although they too
Have had it stolen
This time of innocence
For more academics
More comparison
Pushing
Pressure
Results
To be young
No longer holds appeal
For expectations
Are stacked way high
We should let them play
