To Myself - On My Birthday - May, 18

Two decades plus something and counting

My life in this world is taking shape finally

The Twists and turns of the world I'm now understanding

And I'm beginning to treat life more maturely

 

Fast forward to the not so distant future

I see myself a married and established being

Instilling into my children a wonderful culture

And strapping them in my SUV so we can go sightseeing

 

All said and done, today happens to be my birthday

I've had so many good wishes from friends and acquaintances

Hoping i enjoy to the fullest this wonderful day

This day will certainly leave fond memories
