Old Man

Old man,
what are you holding on to?
The remnants of
an expired youth?
We all age with no say on change,
so be graceful man,
but do it your own way.

Old man,
what is it that frightens you?
Is it all the things
you never got to do?
Donít expect the things you love
to stay the same.
Just remember that,
Youíll simply live
a different day
