‘I am of twenty-one years of age’

I am of twenty-one years of age
I have never had my first subtle kiss
Alone, immersed with love, but of no sage…
I come to disregard, I come to this.

I walk an invisible distance
I walk with a calloused soul;
Years, hours, minutes, all of an instance
My life, darkened, has taken its toll.

Cars unwind, a windy road…
No matter how fast, they pass too slow
Paralyze(d) emotions, it can be an ode
I live this life,…but I live it so.

It takes time to leave this world away
My wonder is continuous, my wonder awry;
My heart pounds, but words cannot say
In sequence to the sunrise, my heart cannot deny…
