_ Poetry Challenge Day 107 (Wed Jan 19)_

They say it’s my birthday.
What does that mean?
There is a connection to time,
But what is it exactly?

Counting the passage of time
Is largely a distraction.
Better we count the
Changes in our perception.

Do I look at the world differently,
Or am I trying to make the world fit
Into some preconceived notion
into some form that soothes me.

If my understanding of the world
Is not growing,
Than neither am I,
And birthdays mean nothing.
