This is a first hand report on the process of aging and the results of same. Please enjoy the latest emission from the mind of a newly inducted curmudgeon.
Time does not necessarily heal all wounds my friends, sometimes the scars are just too deeply ingrained in the memory to be forgotten.
Stay young and fight the onset of curmudgeon-ry,
Just Some Passage Of Time
We go from baby to grown-up
without warning or sign
we go from all warm and cuddly
and safe and sublime
to old men and women
who’ve aged not, like fine wine
now grumpy curmudgeons
who’ve crossed over some line
leaving the past and its promise
somewhere far behind
and how swiftly that happened
with just some passage of time.
