An Old Soul

I have always felt older than I was. The watcher and the protector of my family.

The one who stays alert to the nuances of change that others ignore. I am the keeper of order and the organizer of chaos.

It is the way I maintain my sanity. A feeling of control over what I struggle to make sense of.

I anticipate behaviors like a chess player. Often completing dialogues that are yet to be expressed in my mind.

It is a thankless way of living. It tires my spirit and depletes my soul.
