A Middle Aged Monday


Everyone tells you to
grow up
but they don’t tell you that
you just grow old
And no one seems to mention
That the pound age doesn’t come
prepackaged with sage wisdom
It isn’t just as if you
get better without trying
as you go

So hold on to those tendrils of
youthful vision
and never forget that
in heart
you’ll always walk


Well, another Monday and another little musing here from me. This one was inspired by a passing of another birthday and I thought I’d just send it on and out to you. Started as a scrap and add a little bit onto the end but, for now, this is how it goes.

As always: here’s to hoping your day flies right on by and that you’ve got something cold and on the rocks waiting for you when you get home tonight.

    you just grow old

    I feel the same just as how people told me, oh yea, just go to college…
    But they ain’t tell you debt was associated with it…
