I grow younger with each
breath that I take,
a reversal of ill-fortune, let’s say.

Cracked the code, a matter of will,
these genes obey if you let them.

I bounce off the ageless,
effortless, like stars
to the edge of time,
a return trip home
to new days.

My state of mind
is to pay no mind
to the state of the being
I’m in.
