Daily Prompt: Sixteen

The Daily Prompt states: Write a post inspired by your sixteenth birthday.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us SIXTEEN.

The smart phone went off,

interrupting my slumber.

My friends will call soon, regardless that its early.

10 am.

My excitement can’t be quelled.

I will pass the exam. I will be allowed.

To drive.

I’ve waited for this birthday since I was eight.

I’ll get mom to iron my jeans, I won’t do that.

Breakfast better be quick, I can’t wait.

Dad better be ready to drive me to the DMV.

For soon I will be able to drive myself,

wherever I want to go.

Sixteen is golden,

precious.

I hope I don’t have to get a job.

Sixteen.

    I had forgotten all about turning sixteen and finally being able to get a driver’s license! Thanks for the wonderful reminder.

    I like the poem. It has a fun quality to it. It helped bring memories to my mind about when I was younger.
