Being Old

I’ll imagine about being old.

Being old must feel dull.

Well, not that kind of dull­­—

It’s windy; It might feel impossible to be old.

If you are old, you might not feel steady,

wondering if your pain will reverse

to when you were a kid, or younger.

This is the trouble about this difference.

But on the other hand . . .

Old people can do things, too;

There are moments of good in being old.

I don’t know about what old people do . . .

Maybe read the Bible.
