Shhh: Don't mention the birthdays
One often sees a life become,
besieged by insecurity and doubt,
an aimless shameless shapeless thing
in search of goals and hopes
where memories only crowd
to obscure those horizons visions splendid once allowed
in times when life was so much bolder.
It’s such a bugger, getting older.
