Writer’s Digest Wednesday Poetry Prompt #322, Theme: 10 Lines or Fewer

10

Life in 10 Lines

After childhood comes adolescence,
along with feelings of uncertainty about who we are.
Adulthood follows, when we discover who we really are.
Then middle age creeps upon us,
when we begin to look back at who we were,
and despise ourselves for it.
Old age sets in not too long after,
and we revert back to childhood.
And for those who had no childhood,
there is no going back.
