Forever young

Updated: Jan 13, 2023

Starry-eyed teenager days

during hot humid Houston nights

breeze licking lovely on my skin

while we ride through town on run-down jeeps

arms wide open in delicious joy

At twenty six, I’m still the same

Instead in Tulum, with silks and linen

The salt I wear on sticky hair

My pocket lined with playful secrets

So much I’ve seen of love that flows,

receiving luck that’s right

around the corner, the streetlight glows

I’m blessed with soulful vision

Without regret I push ahead

my heart just welcomes open

A thousand times I’ve died before

but tomorrow’s for evolving

to learn to stay the steady state

of belly-deep laughing
