Peninsula

But I feel I grow old
not older

and I get tougher
Instead of stronger

and uninterested
instead of patient

I demean
instead of rationalize 

and every step of the way
I am no longer amazed
only rarely surprised

I am no longer a child
but this cannot be what "adult" means either

And I do not remember
when I began
fitting in
so well

I believed I was round 
infinite
but I have edges
and this time they don't hurt 
me
but maybe others 

and I feel fine

and that is the worst part
