6th August 2020

Consideration 
With age is less expected
But not usually less anticipated.
Respect
With age is less forthcoming 
But often increasingly earned.
Desire
With age appears less urgent 
But easily exceeds the time remaining.


The hardest part of getting old
Is growing wise,
Seeing past the promise of tomorrow
To the misery of today.
