       today I went to the navy recruiters office to finish up the paper work...My father wasn't to keen on the idea of me in the military but was supportive. But when I have a problem I'll write it down. He found my writting about bieng scared. Now he is worried.

    But this is how I am becoming the person I'll be for the rest of my life, hence the title.

    It's cold-
    White uniforms and anchors-
    Just shooting the bull-
    nothing really serious...yet-

    Talking to the recruiter-
    Fill out the forms-
    Father cries somewhere far away-
    saying good bye to his son-

    The drive home-
    Listing to slipknot-
    Going faster with every second-
    this is my life-
    Just a long ride-

    "Anchors Away"-
    blasting in my mind-
    still, my father on mind-
    I wish he could know-
    who I really am-

    Never meant to hurt him-
    this father of mine-
    wrote about bieng scared-
    of the change-
    not loss of life-

    I am now-
    begining the rest of my life-
    this is the way I will live-
    Becoming who I will be-
    On my own-

       You are making me really, really sad... Why do you want to go to the navy? I am not contradicting, I am just asking. What is it about the navy that draws you there instead of here, and you have fears about it, shouldn't you be excited? If you really wanted to go, you wouldn't be scared. alright, alright, I will lay off, I am just sad after reading this, its to sad for me. You better explain later, lol

      Your poor dad, but he's not the only one who's gonna cry. why must you do this? why this?
    Joining the military now, there won't be a rest of your life. If you can, please reconsider this.
