28.

I can never do everything – of course, not write every book
and swim every ocean, save every child I want to
but the fact that I do want is more than I expected
when I would consider suicide if my week was tough
when I was so lazy, an argument was enough
to send me spiralling, considering just dropping out
but now I do want, I yearn, I plan and I damn near dream
which, while I can’t have everything
is more than I expected at sixteen
