Happy Birthday

Every New Year’s

You’re reminded of how much life is ahead

One hundred and forty-nine days later

Sometimes one hundred and fifty

You’re reminded of how fast life passes

Today is the latter

And concludes your twenty fourth trip around the sun

Though that doesn’t seem long

It’s been a pretty wild ride

You may have thought of unbuckling several times

But every reconsideration brought you to this day

Keep travelling

Keep dreaming

Keep going

Happy birthday, Shallyn

A birthday poem to myself. If there were only one day to show compassion to yourself, shouldn’t it at least be your birthday?

    Happy birthday to you Shllyn! Wish you the best in your mid twenties. The time past real fast while we’re chillin’, or busy doing something for some one else that’s not yourself. Really painful just thinking about it. You really bring hope to my life. I just have to find a way to adapt it. Love your work by the way! Happy birthday Shllyn.
