My birthday blues excites me.
Let me tell you why.
I keep getting finer and finer no lie.
I’m laughing now and I can’t stop.
Okay, okay, okay.
I keep becoming a better person no lie.
With each year that passes I look back.
I look back carefully and examine levels of me.
Mentally, Emotionally, Physically, and Spiritually,
I even reflect on those who are devoted to me.
My birthdays are so much more than my age.
I’m a scientist researching me and documenting each and every stage.
Let me give you a brief synopsis.
Does foolishness make me act a fool?
No, I learned how to keep it moving and remain cool.
Do I worry about walking alone?
No, I’ve learned that sometimes it’s better if your load is light.
Along with that at times I realized my wrongs are what made my situations right.
I realize that my prayer life has become filled with gratitude.
Detecting the blessings within each day,
I’ve learned how to keep my mouth shut when I don’t know what to say.
I look in the mirror and I’m physically satisfied.
Dedicated to working out.
Conscious of the food that I put in my mouth,
Being content in every season is the only way to weather the storms of life.
Forgiveness is a powerful thing.
Love is so beautiful.
Life is so precious.
Depression is a monster that pops up like an unwanted guest.
I’ve learned how to deal with my emotions.
I’m out here in the middle of the ocean, just coasting.
My Birthday blues have my thoughts dancing all night.
I’m touched mentally and that makes me physically alright.
Each year I keep getting better and better.
The taste is so sweet.
Happy Birthday to me, it’s one heck of a treat!
