NEVER SAY NEVER

They had all said never in a million years would they succumb to the normality of adulthood or the humdrum of a midlife crisis.
.
Not one of them would hail the forties as the new twenties and everyone would grow old gracefully. .
.
Well fuck that narrative a 38 year old squealed into the night sky.
.
Her eyes dripping with salty tears, her body battered by memories of better times.

.
The hint of forty wafted past, a sudden dread as life moves fast.

.

Rebuking the never ever and the youthful disdain.
.
She hollers “Roll of forty let’s be twenty again!”
.
Never say never !
