I’ve Become My Father - Poem by Michael. fanniesson

I look in a mirror and see the old man,
I was told was there from fourteen years old.

I’ve become my father,
eyeglasses in every room, so as not
to waste precious time searching for them,
news paper & magazine articles stored in boxes
never to be looked at again,
poetry thoughts written on backs of books,
scraps of paper, most times unable to be
deciphered by me one I get around to it.

I’ve become my father,
six pills a day, caffeine free coffee,
egg substitute, unable to work new gadgets,
rambling on, and on, and on,
quietly waiting for death, of which
I’m not afraid of anymore.
