Age 0 – Conception, here I am world
Crying as I am brought into this polluted world
The only remedy is my mother’s breasts
So I drink, and this moment I feel something different
Something so subtle I close my eyes
This is my first encounter with love.
Age 5 – Everyone is my friend, everything is good, worries don’t exist
Sorrow is no where to be found
Pain is nonchalant, my friends are my all, and my all are my toys.
Age 11 – girls, girls, girls.
Age 16 – Heartbreaks, sex, a façade of love, melodramatic
Arrogance mixed with ignorance and finally diluted with hypocrisy.
Age 21- everything is bleak, all friends are gone but a few, insecurities exist
Pain is ubiquitous, sorrow is atmospheric, happiness is seldom
Life is questionable
But, In my darkest moments I find my inner light.
Age 24 – I find her, my soul mate, life has meaning
I find me, passion is my motto, and success ensues
In the cold winter I blossomed like a summer flower.
Age 50 - Family, son, daughter, completeness
Children are my everything
Summer patio nights reminiscing of my childhood
What did I lack? They get
Where did I fail? They pass
How did I become me? They learned.
Age 83 - Understanding, satisfaction, wisdom, grandchildren.
Age Death – Now my journey begins
