PAD Challenge: Day 16

For today’s prompt, write a mixed up poem. I guess there are a few ways to come at this poem. Your narrator could have mixed feelings about something. Or a character could get “mixed up” in something. Or the poem could be about mixing up a drink. Or a mixtape. Or however you wish to mix this prompt/poem up.

"They" ask you to decide so young,
before you know what's to come.
Career choices, life decisions
made before the world makes incisions
that come at your heart and change your life
bring white to black and black to white,
until it's all just a shade of gray
making your thoughts float away
on fluffy clouds where you head now lays
searching for answers from day to day
changing your mind to decide your fate
wanting more or less, as you sit and wait
for the next big moment to show its face.
