Old and didn’t know it


I didn’t realise how old I was

My mind keeps telling me lies

I feel young and that my outlook

But when I look in the mirror

I get the shock of my life

Because I see and I. Age I can’t believe

An old bloke looking back at me

This can be so hard to believe

My mind it’s being lying to me

Leading me to believe

Others see this young vibrant being

Not someone old and wrinkly

It’s a hard fact to take when you still feel young within

And yes I know how you think and feel holds greater meaning

It’s not vanity, it’s just a worry

That realising I am getting old

Doesn’t leave me much time

Have I wasted so much of my life?

Am I running out of time

I need to do more with my life.

  1. Ah, I tend to feel so young at heart, and my looks are lying in that they make me appear younger than I am. It is the harsh reality that I am not as young as I feel. Sometimes that can be so depressing.
