Day 29 – Changing

Changing

i’ll be nineteen soon.
 
hard to imagine, 
growing older, when you gain years
much quicker than you gain wisdom.
 
i don’t want to be more than a child.
i don’t want time to run out.
 
i wish i could stop time,
and be young for as long as i like.
 
but then the magic, 
 
of running through a rainstorm,
laughing and singing,
smiling,
of first kisses in the sunshine,
in the trees
of  learning who i am-
 
would go away.
 
i don’t want to grow up anymore.
