My Life in Numbers

17 came without a gift

16 passes quickly as if

15 did not promise it would get better

14 innocently believed in a brighter future

13 cowardly ran away from home

While 12 was afraid to end up alone

11 is confused by her body

10 is ready to grow up already

9 rejoices in the spotlight

8 begins to fear the plight

7 doesn't care about failure

 While 6 is starting to taste the adventure

5 radiates confidence

4 outgrows the pretense

3 embraces a new kind of love

2 can't wait for the excitement above

1 laughs and smiles with no thought

While I discover that life is not what I was taught.
