Facing 30 (a didactic)

that each of your friends
has hit 30 before you.
Hold close
the knowledge
that you are wiser
than you were
ten years ago.
Be happy knowing
there is room left
for plenty more growth.
It’s still OK to
make mitsakes.
Go and make more!
You’re still young.
The wrinkles haven’t set in yet,
so keep smiling and laughing.
Enjoy each new adventure,
taste and sunrise.
Embrace the temple that is
your body.
Feed it well,
dance and love
a little more.
Most importantly,
the age old adage:
It’s only a number.
