Those Chaotic Twenties…

Those chaotic twenties,
characterised by comparison and rumination;
when career successes brush up against career panics.

And Saturday night's laughter shape-shifts into Sunday's regret;
as frivolous exploration
transforms into 'unbecoming behaviour'.

Through which independence beckons
and financial demands loom,
yet childhood lurks behind our shoulders.

But those chaotic twenties,
as love, desire and passion are no longer entrenched in shame.
And we approach our thirties a little more balanced.

  2. My twenties was definitely a rollercoaster of a decade. I’ve really been able to come into my own in my thirties.
