Happy Birthday!


A Poem for all the thirty year olds. It's a tough one, good luck.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Thirty.


Old?


Young?


 


Thirty years old.


Half of sixty.


Sixty?


Long slow walks, wrinkly skin, achy bones.


Watching and trying to understand how the world passed by so quickly.


 


Thirty years young.


Fifteen times two.


Fifteen?


Running to school, oily skin, gangly limbs.


Watching and trying to understand what the world means and the surprises it will hold for tomorrow.


 


Thirty?


Somewhere in between,


living in the moment,


hoping for the future,


and


remembering the past.


 


Thirty.


Old? No.


Young? No.


Just thirty.
