a poem by Nadezhda Aleksandrovna Montik, USA - poetry writer, author, poet

You don’t know how you’re supposed to feel
All the emotions just blur into one
Another year gone, another year older
You’re eighteen today.

Your ringing phone carries well-wishes from friends
And you respond to each one with a smile
There is more freedom, more choices to make
You’re eighteen today.

Memories and mistakes play games in your mind
Each one making you laugh or cry
New memories to store, new mistakes to make
You’re eighteen today.

Not wanting to let go of all of those moments
You hug them close for the very last time
With a new strength you let go of seventeen
You’re eighteen today.
