Time


DSC_2687I have a conflicting mind
worrying about a different kind
and looking for a sign
maybe that should plural be
as more than one as you will see
that bother me
my body it is slowing down
with creaks and groans that I have found
are all around
my brain it no longer works so fast
it takes its time even to the last
to remember the past
yet even with these flaws in me
living is still my priority
as there is still lots to see
to all of you that are growing old
struggle on for I am told
the end is cold
better to be half a man
enjoying life as best we can
than let the glass run out of sand
turning back the hands of time
to an age much more sublime
that only I can find.
