Longer Than

I look down

At my tattoos

And I think

Tattoos last longer


Longer than what?

Longer than pain

And happiness

Tears or smiles


Longer than childhood

Or high school


Family or friends


Tattoos last longer

Than retirement

And sometimes

Even Love


My tattoos

Will last longer

Than anything

I go through
