Expectations

Why now? Why at 33 years old did I get this whole thing started? Why not 18 when I was a legal adult? Why not 21 when I was a "true" adult? At 25 I discovered my records were destroyed, losing all hope. So why now? What promomted me at 33 years old to order… Continue reading Expectations
