I
s t a r e  
at the clock,
my chin to my knees.
5 more seconds
and I'll never be fourteen.

4 more seconds
the clock ticks so loudly,
spelling out the last seconds so clearly.

3 more seconds
a new chapter of my life.
So very soon, it will arrive.

2 more seconds
I smile to myself.
For a new beginning,
I must first have an end.

1 more second
I  close my eyes.
3, 2, 1

it has arrived
My birthday
