3651 Days

Updated: Jan 2

January 1, 2010 - December 31, 2019

I never intended it to be this long. I swear. I SWEAR.

Certainly didn't intend to make this place our home

But, 3651 days later we are still, here and still here


90 days seemed to be too much

Geezanages........Why did I ever board that damn plane

Thank God for Metro PC's long distance phone plan

Those Free calls to Trinidad kept me sane


365 more days before I bid this place farewell

Good. I could hardly wait

My son will be off to college and

We? Yessir….we will be waiting to board our flight at the gate


3651 days later, we are still here

A decade of wtfs, lols, smh, stfu, ily, tyvm and hgtv

Ten years of winter, spring, summer and fall

3651 days? This is all so surreal to me.


3651 days to make new friends

521 Fridays? Happy hours fuh so

Ten years of growing pains

A decade of adventures and so much more to go



I wrote this poem on December 31, 2019
