only one you

Each year as my birthday approaches I reflect.

What have I done?  Where am I going?  When will it happen?

blah blah blah

In school, when we are very young, we are taught simple encouraging rules:

You are special, You are unique, You are everything.

So then;  I’m not the rock star.  I’m not the superhero.

Each year as my birthday approaches,  I ask the same questions.

And I would forget:

I’m where I’m supposed to be.

I wouldn’t change it.
