today I turn / I close 22 years of age

Birthdays are a funny thing…

I remember the amazement in my bones. I saw those twenty-year-olds as something magical and extravagant. I felt privileged when they allowed me to be their friend during the peak of my adolescence. I felt special.

I’m 22 now, I’m age appropriate to amaze – boy does that make my head spin…

I don’t think I’m mature enough to be 22 years old. I still have so much to learn. So much to improve. To learn to feel joy in the mist of any situation. To live my life untangled from the ropes of expectation. To sit and write. To chase after the small hopes and desires I have. To not care when others don’t understand what I want.

To be free.
