57 today

I'm 57 years old today.
I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.
I'm waiting to feel complete,
To have more answers
To hear the call to action.
I'm stepping into that age
of contemplation and regret
for all the time wasted
for all the things left to accomplish.
Not ready to admit, it's taken
years of preparation to reach this point
of knowing nothing and remaining
calm about the situation.
Happy Birthday self.
