my 28 summers

so here i stand
on the highway
to Route Mid-Life
a lady of 28 summers
looking all grown-up
two years closer
to the big three-oh
and nowhere closer
to living my dreams
i've had no regrets
i've danced without mercy
and i've nibbled on a sunset
i've lived my life
the way i wanted
i look towards
another breath-taking dawn
the sky blushing
by the sun's first strokes
and i know that
i will continue on
a lady of 28 summers
kissed by pain
caressed by hope.
