(Hour 21 of 24) “maturity”

you yearn for the sun, growing to escape

my stifling selfishness, cannot hold you back.

who am I, to stand in your way,

the time has come, to cast me off

without a second thought, no glances back.

reach for the stars, aim for the heavens.

I will hold you back no more.
