April 21st
This year
It’s not the worst

In fact
It was pretty good
Sometimes
I think it’s cursed

Only forty-eight
Still it’s not too late
To make this mediocre life
Into something great

All those times I’ve failed
When I have not prevailed
And every time I blink my eyes
Another day has sailed

Another year gone by
Sometimes I want to cry
Just one more reminder
That someday we will die
