One Day When I feel Aged


When my sister tells me about her idol
I think I was like that 
When I bragged about my fave band rascal 
Ok, I’m older now

When my brother asks me to help him with his assignment 
Well nobody helped me when I was in college, so I say no
Wait, that must have been as-many-as-his-age ago
Dear God, I’m old 

When my student holding her birthday card
That big colorful number 4 stares at me behind glitters ridge
Wow, that multiplied by at least 9 will go near my age
DAAAAANG! I am that old!


Well sometimes I feel this way, but life is too fun to fill with this kind of thing, rite? :D

Inspired by Aging Contest

    Your students? From your avatar you appear to be quite young... but perhaps this is more so your imagination at work. I'm eighteen and sometimes feel years are passing me by... lol! Well constructed poem Dinda!
