Being 49, Reaching 50...

Rating: 5.0
I am 49,
Going on 50.

I ought to take it easy,
Just be content and let life flow
Like a stream moving slow.

But the whirlpool of life
Keeps me hurtling
Around; and I keep applying.

Thank you, Rajnishji, for your wonderful comments. I truly appreciate them. Sound of music is an all-time favorite movie and will always remain like this for generations to come.

The title of the poem reminds me of a movie The sound of music which was released exactly 50 years ago. I consider it as one of the greatest movies of all times. It is as robust today as it was at the time of its release.

This is indeed a very candid narration of the goings on which have the potential to destabilise a man. But with your gritty nature, you cannot be bogged down as you have aptly pointed out: But am not giving up; I refuse to take it easy, / Just be content and let life flow
