On being 50

Pages turn
Time bewilders
Mirrored wrinkles dance their tune

Blissful some,
others squandered
joy so clear
and love
and pride
regret
despair
just shadows
true?

Walked the straight road
steady, safe
all hopes
and dreams
and plans askew
so time to run now
jump
and fly

On being 50
tasting life!

  1. Hey Sally, I love this poem!

    I haven’t written much in the way of poetry, and what I have written is more along the traditional route. This though is really expressive and brave. Really well done! I look forward to reading some more!
