A simple Haiku about a youths coming of age (specifically about the day they leave home), where they are now alone and out in the world by themselves, but have a clear view of where they want to go in life..

Coming of Age (Haiku)

One day in a world,
Severed from the roots of youth,
Alone but not lost.

  'but not' presupposes that one is lost to begin with...
'and not' is a spirited proclamation that even with that common misconception, one is not lost and somewhat with an air of triumph head forward into the grown up world.

Very uplifting write!

  Short and plainly put. I think it is good to step out in the world, we cannot stay contained in a box of childhood forever. However, I do think that the importance of your family will never decrease, family is family and that is that.

Great job, wonderfully written.

  I think this is good. I like the positivity in the last line, and I actually like the line, but I think you could have stayed with the theme of roots to be consistant. I think you could really expand upon this piece. But as it is, I understand and appreciate it.

  Thanks for the reply.

it's nice to have independance, but it's a human necessity to have someone (like family) close by for support.

  Short but sweet, I like it.
I got out on my own when I was 17 and I loved it, I still love it but sometimes I miss the closeness of a family.
