Turning twenty two, A girl can forget everything she once knew, A birthday comes just once a year Some people revel in it, Whilst others hide it.
The day you celebrate You also mourn for the girl you once were As you realise you are not her anymore You may shed a tear As you say goodbye to yet another year
A year filled with heartbreak, love, friendship Life changing lessons Perhaps it was a year Where something truly amazing happened After twenty one years You realised your worth on this earth and put it into action
So take a second to shed a tear To raise a glass Because twenty one was really quite class Then look ahead because you never know twenty two could be your year.
The times of existential angst are done, And so are times of reckless assumptions, Pretentiousness of insecurities gone, Along the astray ways, and their seductions. I have become twenty-two, and my eyes See differently; no darkness anymore, They're open wide like rosy morning-skies, With a steady gaze, brighter than before. But I don't claim to know it all, no – never, For I surely know that I do not know, Seeking meanings with all my heart forever, Making me human, and making me grow. There is much left to see, and learn, and sing, I'm curious; let's see what fate will bring.
22; i'm 22, still don't know what to do. Roaming around in my mind, chasing dreams that aren't mine. Lost in circus - lost in perfection, something's turning; changing my reflection. Smile mirror, smile dance with luck for a while. Down the drain it goes, dripping failure flows from the eyes to the toes.
