To College Freshmen: A Poem

Sorry you are a guinea pig
You probably wanted a different gig

But you're not alone—it's your whole generation
This pandemic's been rattling our entire nation

The world has been turned upside down
At the moment your world is just forming

Stepping into life on your own
Studying, socializing, dorming

Figuring out who you are and who you want to be
Determining the balance between rules, regulations, and free(dom)

No matter how it all goes down
Just take it day by day

The universe's turned upside down
Within your work, find play
