I look behind,
And thought I would never get here.
Coloring led to drawing to graphic arts.

I look closer,
Quinceanera, Sweet Sixteen, Prom
Too old, too fast

It’s fun, driving, classes, college
Going places, sight-seeing

Looking back
Held in set routines, child’s smiles
Yet never forgetting I had

I wasn’t so wild, so careless
Yet satisfied enough with life

When you’re young, decisions come easy.
When you’re old, choices haunt you.
