THIS HERE LIFE

A Poem by Miss Sharon
"

Getting older is NOT for sissies!

"
THIS HERE LIFE

Too many days have called my name...
Too many nights in bed.
There's too much pain in life's refrain
And too many words lie dead.


The youngins speed right past my door
Like snowballs bent for hell,
And no one even SEES my door
Or ever rings the bell.

My closet's full of worn out clothes
But I don't even care.
'Cause here I sit without a thought
Of goin anywhere.

The long and short of this here life
Is but a game of chance...
Where things wear out and I am left
With holy underpants!
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Ah...the golden years! LOL

dear Sharon… I feel like a Baby Grand Piano… I know I could make beautiful Music 🎶 if only I had a Tune-up… You are such a Tonic and I know you Play the Piano. I still collect old sheet Music… at Antique Stores… if only I could keep my fingers from Locking up. “The Older the Violin… the Sweeter the 🎼 Music” is my Motto..
tenderly, Pat

Well thank you Tate! I appreciate you. ~Sharon
I'm laughing! As a nurses aide I've seen many pairs of holy panties. Now the last poem is making more sense. I'm going backwards, just like you might wish time could.

Your description is full of meaning, namely your using the word sissies made me chuckle though I understood the seriousness of it. Your poem was wonderfully penned. tyfs

Yes, dear Sharon. The golden years. I am still waiting for them. I do understand the poem and I loved the ending. Thank you, dear friend for sharing the amazing poetry.

Thanks so much my friend for your nice review! I appreciate you. ~Sharon
A great poem with good rhyme and meter but what made it for me was the humor and pain. Sweet and wour. I too have children that pass by the door and grandchildren that I don't see often enough.

Gee
Seems to be a sad reality of growing old, our voice becomes muted and our bodies transparent with folk neither seeing or hearing.
A well written piece that adds sadness to humour

A humorous offering here, and well rhymed, but as is stated, getting older is not for sissies. The insidious part is how swiftly it creeps up on you. The lesson is to be mindful and appreciate your life, because time is remorseless.

I laugh at this, especially your paring line
We are experiencing much the same, grandkids live on our doorstep but we rarely mix
the only golden aspect of this time of life is the amount of gold spent on pills

I felt some appreciation for life tinged with sadness . When we get older, our perspectives change on life. We take an account of our past mistakes and lost opportunities. Such is life Sharon. At least you made a difference in someone's life. Excellent take .
