Forty is Fine
40 shuts the door on the insecurities of youth
I wouldn't be 21 again for a million trillion dollars
Or even 29
40 is fine
I've learned from my mistakes
Watch me prove it
I know what I want
Watch me do it
I have great friends, the right friends
to see me through it
My parents are my friends, not a mystery
I love them more now, knowing what they did for me.
And the future is growing so fast, it seems
Every week he needs new jeans
Pretty soon he'll want the car
I'll say, "Drive me to my book signing, son. It's not far."
40 is a release, a shout!
"Hey world, Look out!"
Christine Hardy, 2010
