Old

Old is a relative term, meaning what?

To do with time past, more or less forgot.

It comes to us all, so they say, old age.

Did you get by on less than a living wage?

Is all the world a stage?

How did you play your part?

When did you start?

Did you break a heart?

Perhaps your own, if truth were known.

Old age is something to look forward to unless war comes along and spoils the view.

I hope for something better.

I suppose, you too.
