How revolting it is

disheartening and wrenching

that the heyday of our life

of our youth

is the age of longful dreaming for the future

and plan-making

and hope

and eager expectance

and the golden age we envision in this climax of our lives

simply never comes


kids grow up

ideas get reasoned to collapse

life happens

death happens

to days, and to dreams, and to friendships

and yea, one day, in the not too distant future,

to bodies by and by.
