In my 20s

In my 20s

A Poem by KevinKevz

I miss my teenage days after I got 20
Despite being so reckless and happy go lucky
At 21, I survived thesis and graduated from university
Later I landed on my first job then became an employee.

I was the life of the party at the age of 22
Club hopping, drinking, chugged the beers and brew
So I worked hard at 23 and bit off more than I could chew
Because I had to save money and pay when my bills are due

Adulting really hits me hard as I turned 24
Lockdown, meltdowns, crestfallen to the core
Distressed, jobless, hopeless, my heart was on the floor
Somewhere along the line, I thought I can't take it anymore.

But I snapped out of it and persevered at 25
Still vertically challenged but I continue to thrive
On my 26th birthday, I felt truly alive
Cheers to the "acceptance" that I'm no longer deprived.

I have my own house now, enjoying my privacy.
Being a 27 year-old grown up ,striving to be wealthy
So far, my life has been sweet, wonderful and merry
But it's also tough, chaotic and full of responsibility.
