Grow up.

I look in the mirror and I see a girl looking back at me.
She told me she's going to turn 18 in 2 weeks time. a number.

And it makes me think of what exactly I've been doing for the last 17 years of life.

What is it eh?
I don't think I deserve to be 18.

Sultan Muhammad al-Fateh took up the throne at the age of 19.
Salahuddin al-Ayubi lead an army at the age of 17.
and the list goes on.

There's so much for me to explore before that number is entrenched on me.

"Do you ever had a boyfriend?" A friend once asked.
