Oh grow up

Oh Grow Up


I feel like a thirtysomething

at forty-eight, but who’s counting.


Age is just a number you see,

not some rule for maturity.


I am judgmental towards some

who try to force me to become


like them, old and living to die

when I am still so much alive.


I’d rather have a child-like view

that embraces life and stays true


to who I am, not who they say

I should be, how I must behave.


You can act your age if you must.

I’m fighting the return to dust!


Life offers as much as we choose

to intentionally pursue.
