60 years and 5 days

It's been five days since I turned 6o...
and quite honestly,
nothing has changed...
nothing big, nothing small...

I'm still me; searching, waiting, wondering...
maybe wishing and expecting...
I haven't done anything very different
other than lived for 60 years and 5 days.

Did I imagine that lightning was going to strike me?
Maybe I secretly felt like I was going to win the lottery
even though I've never bought a ticket...
Inside my head turning 60 grew and grew and grew
until it hung on me like beads or vines,
tangling me up with nowhere to go...

I think it's time to start unraveling
the beads and the vines,
choose any direction
take baby steps or giant steps
and go forward...
