Guess who’s 23?
I thought maybe
you could use some poetry.
At age 4
you were just a boy
stepping into the world.
At age 8
You learned to make mistakes
so you gave it your all everyday.
Remember when you were 13
and they asked, “where do you see yourself in 10 years?”
Did you ever think you would be here?
At age 20 (hold on we’re almost done)
you spent most of that year waiting
you were too drunk to remember,
but I promise you it was fun.
you set out to find you,
and came back with a new point of view.
Now you’re the big two three
living life both happily,
But I write to you today
to tell you that you’re great.
Ignore that self-doubt and pity
throw it all down the drain.
Cause if you could see what I see,
you would see a man bleeding with possibilities.
