Birthday Blues

A quarter century ago
I came to this world
Crying and kicking
Maybe it was wisdom
Maybe it was warning
That with every anniversary
The World will love you
A little less
That with every year gone
Life will slip away
A little more
But still, it is a milestone
And I mark mine
With my words.

Rose tints

Today, I discarded the black tints

And viewed my world through 

Rose-tinted glasses.

Exhilarating as can be,

I know this wouldn’t last…

But, just for now, the world is

Not so bad;

Not so round;

And not so endless…
