The Shadows Of Many Years Do Fall - Poem by Gert Strydom

The shadows of many years do fall
and without fear
the old man goes stumbling on his way,
at times somewhat angry
early in the morning he searches the world,
wants to find signs
that this day will be better than any other
while his life is changing mercilessly.

    that this day will be better than any other
    while his life is changing mercilessly.

    not only old people, but also the people in trouble always think like this! !
