Younger

I lied. This one was written in 2014.

*

I am jealous
you are so young you are so young
already to know yourself
and I so old
and so lost amidst questions
you already asked

so young – look at me

I am too old to know
so little
about me too old and so many questions
and you are young young young
and full of answers
or at least the words to ask

I am lost in my age
so young too old so young too old

who are you to know yourself
when I keep asking
who what who what why
am I why am I why am I

seems to me you already know
and I envy you
so young
so you

(30th December, 2014)
