The Age I Long For
When I was 10, I longed to turn 15.
I thought when I turn 15, I’ll have the best year of my life.
But before I knew it, the year come and go and suddenly,
I’m in the dark.
So I made a new goal, I longed for 21.
The year when I can finally be a legal adult but mentally still a child.
Many things happened but it was not the year I’m looking for.
So I gave myself time and waited till I was 28.
Now that I’m 28, I wonder why have I been longing for numbers all these times and hoping something miraculous happens.
Maybe it’s time, I make my own miracles.
