Growing Up

a poem

Another year gone,

A step on the ladder,

Still, I grow.

Terrified of thirty,

But always the actor,

Another year gone.

Numbers up on the scale,

My waist getting fatter,

Still, I grow.

Pursuing my passion,

Just dying to matter,

Another year gone.

Loneliness hurts like

a heart that is shattered,

Still, I grow.

Lost in nostalgia,

Don’t start the next chapter,

Another year gone.

Accept or deny,

Which one would I rather?

Another year gone,

Still, I grow.
