Notes on Aging

Ignoring the darkness
  is getting harder
I can feel it creeping
  round the edges
I fight it
but I know it’s there

My future seems finite now
it never used to
but time is limited
there’s a hole in the bottom of the glass
and the light is leaking out

I want to finish strong
not put things off
but I have trouble with rainy
  days in the winter
I get bored and restless
I can’t work outside
shopping sucks
rainy sightseeing is of no interest
and my days are running short
I still have time
I still have enough energy
but there is the boredom
and I am restless
and the daylight is slipping away

  1. Beautiful piece, very much where my head is at too. I love the look of your webpage, Marv… elegant, distinguished.

    1. Thanks. I have been away from my site for a while. Struggling to get some momentum going again. Getting old kinda sucks and this long dreary Oregon winter isn’t helping a lot. Thanks for your comment about my site.
