An Old Man Comments

Rating: 2.8

At the noisy end of the cafe, head bent
over the table, an old man sits alone,
a newspaper in front of him.

Introspection at the end is something very natural.

Amazingly powerful poem which reflects a man's repentance in his old age over his callous approach towards life during youth. Thanks. This enters MyPoemList now.

Beautiful. Makes one want to seize the day, and drain every dropp of joy from life.
