I always feel bigger than I am

In so many ways

Today I feel as broken as twelve

I always drink more than you

No matter who you are

The past is the past

But the past hasn't passed

And I pass on each moment I'm in

The door is so closed

The door is so close

Tomorrow I'll knock forty times

I wear all new clothes

I'll shave my head

Sit silent and sigh

Lent my jeans to two kids

Shut up! Cover it all in awareness


Yesterday my daughter informed me that one day she'd be five and a half and therefore as old as me.

I told her I was older than she could count.

She then proceeded to triumphantly count to sixteen (incorrectly) to prove me wrong.
