Lifeline (Poem #92)

I was once told

that I may not grow old

after being warned

I lived everyday, alarmed


I do not know

about what I may die of

but sure enough

I know it’s gonna be rough

As a child

I lived in fantasy

years older now

I learned to be wild

for I met reality


The clock said ticktock

this life, I can’t get back

the sand is running

my candle dripping


They said it would be fun

all the things I have done

I guess it’s what I want

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
