when already old, what do you think never lost?
human, when already old will know fear and become shy
used to pretend not see, pretend not listen
maybe you yearn your youth, but when realize
the life stops
when already old, the last thing gone is worry
you really know the world so you lose courage
you even don't want to see your hair color
of course, there some who covered by despair and boredom
every minutes and seconds go so slowly
of course, there some who too exhausted and do nothing
even though that, don't think because it's too late
you don't like yourself right now
don't shame to be afraid, just do what you think
if finally you realize you're wrong, you still can fix it, don't give up!
you are so tough, old, and wise to keep strong
you should love that aging
stand by feet, because it is your charm and your biggest weapon

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
