World Passed By

Poem by: Mike Stevens

Summary

I know this sounds whiny; I was thinking about how most T.V. shows and movies are aimed at a young audience, and how I have trouble, seemingly overnight, relating to the younger generation, and how long has that been going on? Only now, I'm the older one instead of the younger one!

World Passed By

 

How and when did it happen?

One minute you’re young and know all the answers,

The next you’ve aged and become invisible

The world must have passed by while you were sleeping

T.V. shows aimed at 16 year olds

Once, it was you in their cross hairs

Now you’re 50 though, and feeling irrelevant

I know, I know, I shouldn’t feel this way,

And usually I don’t, but it seems like a young person’s game

You know you’re getting old when the athletes and actors

You see all look like kids, and the young don’t relate to you, or you to them

Seems like only yesterday, I started up the hill.

Now I’m nearer to the top than the bottom,

So many scars inside and out I’ve collected along the way,

So many battles I’ve won and lost,

So many mistakes I’ve made,

That I want to warn people away from,

But sometimes I feel like The Invisible Man
