Decrepitude...

Obviously.


Have you gazed upon a fading flower?

How did it cause you to feel?

Re: I don't like being old..
it sucks! Don't let anyone tell you differently!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33366038


This probably seems silly, but I would like you to watch the wonderful movie Harold & Maude. If you've already seen it, you should watch it again.
I recommend it because it's wickedly funny, sincere, appropriate to what you're talking about and because it will remind you of the tremendous and beautiful potential in all of us no matter the age.
I know there are compensations that must be made, but there is a path for you that doesn't include the words "I don't like being old.."
I'm younger than you (39), but have spent the last 25 years sick with brain dysfunctions, auto-immune diseases and various other crap including losing all traces of the beautiful woman i once was. It's very difficult to be both vain and undeniably ugly!
I just began feeling better last year. So I'm starting my young time old, haggard and fatigued, but fucking determined to make myself into a worthwhile human being and find joy in the process.
Peace to you!

And, I am only 62!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33366038


Yeah. I spend most of the day trying to get my heart to beat right. It really sucks. Arthritis, weakness, ED, and on and on. Plus the guy in the mirror looks like shit. He's not young and handsome like me.

Don't you have a fucken A? or a fucking S? You know keyboards are cheap. I've got at least a dozen in the closet. But then I'm old and I've had a lot of time to collect them. Never mind. Just get the hell off my lawn.

I think you're right about that feeling. What is hard for me, is watching my parents getting older, and realizing the time for them to be here is growing so much shorter, even though, I know that none of us are promised tomorrow.

I was pondering on this earlier...


If one could be granted the choice of eternal youth...would you take it?

 Quoting: Seer777


such a good question Seer

to waken every morning vital refreshed and 22 ...your friends and family fade and disappear .

after a time, wise beyond wise...with no contemporaries to share wisdom with

know you will not miss the wonders to come...and wonder about what you are missing by cheating death

too poignant... i think not
 Quoting: david 16910407


Hello David.

Long time...


I saw you some days ago, on another thread and wondered how you were.

I have not forgotten what you said to me that one time. As I felt your poetry beautiful.

Maybe you will remember.


Also, perhaps your friends and family are granted such as well...

What then?

:)
 Quoting: Seer777



that would be infinitely better.

still, tho i love life, yet what lies beyond the pale has it's allure



this from the poem -invictus- [ mayhap you are familiar with it]

beyond this vail of wrath and tears,

lies but the horror of the shade.

and yet the menace of the years,

finds, and shall find me, unafraid


in any case, a pleasure to speak with you again, good friend

I was not.

Thank you for sharing...

I am the captain of my soul.

Re: I don't like being old..
Experienced is a better adjective
if you're uncomfortable with being
defined as an eternal soul?
"When your eyes are incapable of tears,
your ears lose their sensitivity,
your voice is unable to wound and
your feet are cleansed in the blood
of your heart, then you may stand
in the presence of your master."

Loosely translated from:
"Light on the Path"
