Pushin’ Thirty

I’ve watched you grow for some time now;
I’m quite impressed by what I see.
So here’s to you, my good friend;
My compliments-and a poem, from me.

The small percent of humans who will
Hold themselves accountable,
To take responsibility for their
Moods and words and deeds;
Can radically re-invent themselves
According to their needs.

You’ve come upon that time of life
When one’s priorities are re-arranged,
What makes you feel proud of yourself
And just what you want changed.

Your look on life is positive-
At least it seems to be;
You can control your temper, too-
As far as I can see.

Maybe this is biased
But I think you’ve really mellowed
And the growth within your soul
Is nothing short of stunning-
You’ve grown up, and rebirthed yourself;
You’ve taken steps to become whole.
