~Birthday Thoughts~

Restless mind,
Wondering heart,
Choices to make,
Decisions unmade,
Another year is here,
Don't feel a day older!
Spiritually and personally,
Felt like I was 3 a while ago
Today, I feel 21
Hopefully, I look 18!
Whatever number I may be today,
I hope I made some impact in that time!

Another year, more grace!

Can't wait to eat cake! whoop, whoop!

Eerily, I have been buffeted by such a chaos of thoughts and emotions on almost every birthday since my teen years (well, except for the cake part). You captured well the reflection I know I have every birthday - if I remember it. Is it yours?

Maxine said...

@ NYA- Yes it is! And I'm still restless and bothered. Thus, the reason I'm still up!...Ok off to try and sleep!Growing up makes you ponder life more, I think :)

If the pic captured what you look like now, you certainly look 18.
