Sixteen store bought birthday cakes.
Fifteen words to that couldn't be more wrong.
Fourteen years of three hour study breaks.
Thirteen friends singing mainstream radio songs.
Twelve for the midnight I first snuck out.
Eleven trophies that collect slates of dust.
Ten reasons why I should really study for that chemistry test.
Nine is my baby sister.
Eight for the clique I joined in junior high.
Seven chocolates more than I said I'd have.
Six lies I have told my parents (add 32 more)
Five beautiful trees in my neighborhood.
Four universities I need to get into.
Three songs I can sing flawlessly.
Two eyes to learn my lessons, all of them.
One person who takes the first step.
