Age: just a number;
Numbers: just symbols —
Numbers to count the years,
the unforgettable nights and then the tears.
Symbols to remind us of nothing
or everything that has given us life.
Air — blood — rushing through veins,
and skin encasing the meat and nerves within.
It is life.
It is wealth.
It is every year.
– Brittany Rose
