Old Age

~By Stephen Blackwood


Back then, I was dying to live.

Eager to prove myself. 

Eager to join the rat race. 

Now my youth has passed. 

All my so called skills,

Left obsolete with time. 

All my assets eroded into liability in front of my eyes. 

My arrogance beaten to wrinkles. 

My eyesight weak & blurred. 

But, my vision is clearer than ever. 

And I understand that I’m just living to die now.
