Sixty & Ten


My life is tired
a waste of time 
watch the memories
falling so hard 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   
of life on his own
wasted, forgotten,

so far from home.
