Celebrating a Year

week 493 ~ the ignominy of aging

with 2 comments

the ignominy of aging
falls heavily in active mode
we fall squint our bodies implode
as decades pass no point raging
regret’s for naught we’re engaging
with falling apart nonfiction
trumps wisdom earned hope’s eviction
brings lessons sadly learned too late
damage done just courage and fate
left to assuage youth addiction
