31st

Happy 31st birthday Thirty flew by very first But not fast enough to leave unwanted baggage’s in the past Promises made to self were broken repeatedly But still I will smile I’ve made it another year Happiness so far seems like a cheating lover One minute it’s here with sweet words and promise to stay for good Next minute its gone, leave me sad and gloom While cheating lover can be do without, happiness can’t I am grateful for knowing its touch, though it’s warmth somethings fade before it rekindles 31st, 11323 days since I drew my first breathe Since then I have taken many of first steps Some I remembered like yesterday Like learning to ride a bicycle at 14 going on 15 Some firsts were too old and I too young to remember Like the first time I walked, the first time I danced But still I love them all walking, dancing and cycling Happy 31st year old Old, still a foreign concept being old So is being a husband, a father, a responsible adult These are what I count myself as now I am no longer that child that run to feel faster than cars No longer feel fearless and on top of the world 31st years have thought me cautions But there are times these years evaporate and I’ll cartwheel and set myself free Happy happy happy 31st birthday to me Born on 30th of September 1986 Allah has been kind to me So, I will keep smiling for have made it another year Alihamdulillahi, I gave thanks and praises to Allah
