experiences defining age;
life is just but a stage,
age that ages like wine,
the older it gets,
the better it tastes.
signs of you not getting younger:
remnants of failures,
closer than you think!
coming to terms with your past,
satisfaction that never lasts.
never completing enough,
never accepting redundant normancy.
not having enough energy;
but not enough to forget your stubborn pride.
wanting to succeed,
enough to take the chances when you get it.
lost in teh sudden change of pace,
reality of pressures unaccounted for!
