I didn't think it would 
happen so soon, 
I swear I was just 
still using a Zune. 

I look back and see 
all the trauma and flaws, 
But also the triumphs 
that deserve an applause. 

There's memories I love 
and some that I hate, 
Yet all of them now 
I know were my fate. 

The years have gone fast 
but still seemingly slow, 
To end that rough chapter 
I needed to outgrow. 

So now here I am 
the day is arriving, 
To be thirty, still flirty, 
and continually thriving.
