May 2015
Make a wish they say
For a birthday is a special day
Seventeen years for this day to come
For there to be cake and lyrics to be sung

Look up your messages and notifications
The same words from different people
Many of whom I don't remember meeting
Strangers posting things as if I knew this person like a friend
Worst of all, it's on a Monday

But I decided to just celebrate in peace and quiet
Doing the things I love
With the people that matter to me
No, not family, kinship doesn't make a person great
Friends, actual friends, people you've known for years and have admired

I thank those that I have trusted and had trusted me
Those I have helped, and had helped me
It's the wishes from you that matter
Thank you
