Why Are Some People Late Bloomers?

Are you a late-blooming adult? You’re in remarkable company. Julia Child savored her first French meal at age 36, Bram Stoker published Dracula at 50, and Grandma Moses started painting at 78.

Mirror, mirror on the wall

Why must you be so cruel?

Didn’t I play by all the rules?

This can’t be me that I see

Gone is the girl I use to be

When did I get to be so old?

I did exactly as I was told

Stayed out of the aging sun

While others were having fun

Developed good daily habits

Except I couldn’t eat like a rabbit

But still, I did my very best

Took care and got plenty of rest

Stop playing these games with me

Give me back the girl I use to be!

-Repost from 2014. As the days roll quickly toward another number on life’s odometer I can’t help but wonder what the future holds.

Unforeseen Sacrifices

image

Ripped apart at the seams
Waking up to terrors screams
A new day of possibilities
Waiting to create realities

There is always a paid price
In the unforeseen sacrifices
Handed out despite our faith
Written upon destinies fate

Life’s battles and deeper scars
Show us the depth and how far
We have come in a brutal fight
Determined to remain alive

Standing at the very brink
Think, it’ll be gone in a blink
