Suddenly Thirty

Suddenly Thirty



At sixteen I’m all grown up.

At eighteen life is getting tough.

I blinked and woke up twenty-one.

Married to young and had a son.

Even though I must remember to have fun.

He’s the best thing I ever done.

Where did the time go?

I may be young but I feel so old.

Suddenly I’m thirty.

What does my future hold?

All is a blur; where did my dreams go?

I had everything; at least I thought so.

I wanted to travel and see the world.

But instead reality spoke to this girl.

I’m not complaining or feeling full of sorrow.

But sometimes it’s others strength I must borrow.

Although I have people that I love and see.

I still wonder when I can be me.
