Old Stan


He's over forty years beyond his prime day
With silvery hair and gray hairs on his chest
And whilst most his age are sitting and relaxing

    I am sure Stan will live to be a nice old age, maybe he will find time to be a father and develop a relationship with the children he brought into this world. Which would be really nice..love the poem, (Report) Reply

    Yes I can relate to this poem I am only 50 but I try to stay in perfect shape and my girlfriend is 23 and I can't remember when I went out with a girl my age.I don't look for young girls they find me.I don't pretend to be young I just am.The only time I am reminded of my age is when some one my age complains about me not spending all of my time being sedate in front of a T.V. with an older not so attractive woman like they do. I know we get older but I won't force myself to act like older people I have seen I just act the same as I always have.I don't feel older.... Yet....Good poem. (Report) Reply
