I wrote this poem straight from the heart, freestyle, with no planning to describe how I feel about my upcomming 21st birthday, and will be released latter this year in 2008 with my second poetry album.PLEASE LEAVE YOUR COMMENTS and view my other works, thank you!

21 (c) Zurrell Loriez 2007


Twenty one is Monday

And today is Saturday

I made plans for Sunday

But the sun wonít shine


While the sunrays burn through my window pane

They do nothing to un-cloud the pain in my heart

Things are getting warmer but life is getting colder

I imagined things would be different by Monday

Maybe I would be more mature

And my life more secure

But things are twenty-one and the same

I feel so damn obscure


I told them I wanted liquor

To indulge in a drunken stupor

A party for family and friends

No need for money or ends


From terrible two

To teen thirteen

I made sixteen

And legal eighteen

And yesteryear there was twenty

Ah, twenty one, and nothing to show for.

The last of the birthdays that stand out

But damn, nothing to show for.


No liquor or family

No party or calls

But I still have my dreams

But they too have failed me

Children are supposed to dream

Not adults

Yet here I am with no accomplishments

But many different faults

Im twenty one now, so why do I still dream?

When will I wake up to the table that God has prepared for me?

I just donít know


Iíll just drift away today, while thereís two days left

Two days left until I turn twenty one

From today, April 21st.

A very "Happy Birthday" sunshine!! You anxiously await alcohol for your 21st birthday. Hmmmmmm, when I turned 18, the drinking age was raised to 21. When I turned 21 the drinking age was lowered to 18!!!!! Ughhhhhhhh!! You have your whole life ahead of you, time for dreaming never stops! Whatever you do, wherever you go alwsy in your heart be happy!!

Be safe,
