Transition of a Twenty-Something

I’ve been getting lost
In the chaos of life
In the chaos of my mind

It’s scary to turn around
And see
The person
I worked so hard to build
Is someone I can no longer find

Whereas I was once felt scattered
It seems that my pieces turned to ashes
Disintegrating into dust
With no recognisable pattern

I’ve been told that you fall apart
In order to come together
But my jagged edges no longer slot
I’m full of holes
Hastily stitched together

If I was half a person beforehand
I am another fraction of that now
I want to live a long full life
But am blind to knowing how

    If it’s any consolation (and I can’t imagine that it would be), transition sixty-something also exists.

    Hey, life has a way of figuring itself out, just be kind and patient with yourself until it does.

    Stay strong, keep searching within yourself… hope you find that you know yourself more than you realize
