i am twenty7

it’s the 25th of October again

and they’re now asking how old i am.

i got stuck in 22

that small gap between the present and your future

the neverland between today and tomorrow.


i feel that everything is still within my reach

just a few inches from becoming a reality

and yet i also feel they have passed

that they have become nothing but dreams.


i am twenty seven in a few hours

in less than a day i will be a year older

maybe my 22 will finally be over.
