Times A Wasting

Rating: 5.0
The future ain't what it used to be',
well the days get longer but the years shorter.
the cliched light at the end of the tunnel gets nearer;

'old age ani't no place for sissies' so Ms Davis said
how right that was, though an understated aphorism.
strange though many so called sissies are the strongest people I know.

truth is the future is shorter, beginning to think more in the past.
yeah, so it's right ' the future just ain't what it used to be'
mainly because there is less of it.

You have so aptly described the dwindling down of time in poetic form. I particularly liked the line about thinking more in the past. Age will do that to us. A wonderful poem that touches the hearts of your readers. Thanks for sharing. : -)

Women have been found to have an extra protective chromosome. That's why their longevity is better.

thank you for your strong feeling and powerful language has used in this lovely work, it is short but deep, well; the Anthology was the main issue that made the philosophers thinking and thinking but they never came out with an answer.. I have enjoyed your meaningful poem,10++
