You are young at heart You do not want to feel old but you can’t stop getting old. You think you could still do many things you were able to do years ago. As time goes by you find that you are no longer able to many things you used to do .
Now you realize that sometimes you mind does not seem to work. You are suffering from mental aberration. Hell,now you couldn’t remember where you place the tool you are using just now. You like to keep odd and ends because you think they could be useful later on. When the time comes for you to use them you completely lost track where you kept them.You have kept them in a safe place you would not forget. You get annoyed because when you kept them somewhere you thought you could always find them again. Sheet,you can’t trust your memory anymore.Not too bad,your still remember where you keep your cash because you are in contact with it everyday.You are also getting stingy because you do have as much money as before.
years ago you could walk along the roof ridge of your house. You repaired the roof leaks yourself. You l could still do that,you think, but now your whole body is shaking with fear as you reach the top rung of the ladder. Alright, you mange to climb up but then you wonder whether you can get down down. Your fear of height is getting over you. You are not sure which leg should go down first. You will be the joke of the whole town when you were helped down by fire fighters.Now it has dawned on you that you are are no longer young.
You are feeling unsure of yourself when driving. You find driving at night is a torture. You throw bucketfuls of cursing and blasphemy. Those stupid drivers must be blind because their headlights are too bright and are obstructing your vision You do not want to admit to you wife beside you the fact that your eyesight is getting bad. You tend to snap at her when she tells you that. In actual fact you know she was right because you are not able to do much without your spectacles. You can’t even draw a straight like without them perching on you nose.
As time goes on you are less tolerant of comments you don’t like. You feel it is better to shut your mouth as much as possible to avoid negative comments. You end up talking to yourself ,grumbling about all things is world.
Day by day you are getting lonelier . Many good friend are gone forever. Many good friends are getting sick or bedridden. You are lucky you are still strong but you are having less people who can share your feelings. You are now spending less time at the coffee shop as you seldom have somebody to talk to.
You feel a loss of love. Your children seldom talk to you because there is nothing in common to talk about.They leave you alone.
You are now a lonely old man. Sometimes you wish your time would come sooner. You feel people close to you have forgotten all the good things you have done for them.
We old people need rejuvenation and love. I hope young people should remember this . Remember the happy times you spend with your old men when you were young and playful. Remember the time when your old men did everything for you even in difficult times.It is time to make them happy.
