Sixty and Ten

A broken heart
troubled mind
crumbling memories
so far behind. 

Slower and older
no longer a young man
taking chances
as fast as he can. 

One year then another
then another again
twenty turned forty
now sixty and ten. 

The man who was driven
what has he become
Alone, unraveling, 
defeated and numb. 

Drained from the struggle   
from life on his own
wasted and forgotten
so far from home.
