 I wrote my first poem in... Quite possibly over a year?

Going on twenty-three

Am twenty-two, going on twenty-three,
Come take a look at my life and see;
I'm growing up, I'm settling down,
In the adult ways upon which I used to frown.

Am twenty-two, going on thirty-three,
Take my own responsibility.
Cook my food, pay my bills,
No pizza or fries because it kills.

Am twenty-two, going on forty-three,
My days no longer free.
I go to work from nine to five,
Earn my very own way through life.

Am twenty-two, going on fifty-three,
Have to look respectable now, you see?
Will never wear clothes in black and grey,
Well, that's what I used to say.

Am twenty-two, going on twenty-three,
But tonight I am age-free.
Bring out the sexy dresses, bring out booze,
Sometimes even pretend-adults have to let loose.

hmm at twenty three I think ... you're still quite young, seeing as I've got two whole decades on you! At twenty three ... the world was still new and exciting because the world is always changing even as we are. One never stops learning and hopefully one never stops being young at heart.

Have fun, Happy birthday and wrap up warm! Spring is in the air so wear the colours all of them ... I'd choose aquamarine or daffodil yellow or maybe freesia pink! Enjoy, because tomorrow is a brand new day, and don't worry about the numbers so much.

Nice. Much truth in your words.
