getting old

Getting old,

I find it hard to trust,

having had my trust broken

I find it hard to learn,

having lost my sense of wonder

to cynicism and depression.

I find it easier to read and manipulate people,

hating myself for it,

harder to keep an open mind,

having lost my ability to appreciate possibilites,

while I search desperately,

for the ability to appreciate

what’s staring me in the face,

myself in other people

Too old and tired to make a new place home,

too wise to know it’s the only way to go.
