22

22 is a lucky number they say
22 would grant you a special year they say 
But they say that it is also a period of 
Transition, of learning to put child-like things away like romance dreams
But one could not simply do that.
As the child sees things beyond what they are.
Therefore I still want to be a child and a woman. 
That way one does not feel old or growing older. 
A 22-year-old woman once said everything will be alright at 22
Happy free confused and lonely in the best way. That is, free from the world order. 
At 82, I would still look up to this woman and her child-like aura.
A child will still be in me.Image
