Beyond Birthday

The time that didn't exist
No colors, an example of nothing
Your eyes weren't opened
Nor were they formed
There was no body
No soul


But now you can breathe
You can see
You look up into the clear blue sky
To realize
Your time beyond you: your future
Your present that lies within every minute


Your body has changed
You see the world as it is
From a waken dream it seems
Everything is now clear
Your life is still beginning
You're now officially sixteen

This is for my friend who turned sixteen.
