This Day In Age

I find it strange this day in age
Some beautiful ones are still teens
I've talked to older women, I'm afraid;
It's almost like I'm caught in between.

You see, other Adventist Christians,
They did consider it ignorant of me.
I didn't ask for this experience;
I don't wish to be in captivity.

Is it how I carry myself?
Well, maybe it's the male physique
Which might describe the way she felt
That time when her eyes were on me.

I picked the less of two evils;
Adulthood is not simple to me.
I will never be perfect for people;
Especially, when I'm twenty-three.

    That may be because 23 is "in between;" :) there is nothing strange about that James ;) ...just don't go too young there.

    No :) I've been waiting for James to post...so far I've been reading Poetic Justice work. But lately I have been seeing a glimpse of James, and he points to his maturity :)

    Well, I haven't gone too young. This is an old poem. I'm 24 now. My birthday was in November. The poem "Fighting Temptation" is about a woman your age. That's why I have been reluctant to either post or repost some of the poetry that I've written. In some ways I am further ahead than you realize.
