OLD AND INVISIBLE

OLD AND INVISIBLE

When you look over here,

What do you see?

Do you see an old man?

Do you even see me?

 

The young do not see

How fast time flies,

Or that we

Are all doomed to die,

 

Maybe you think

I am glum and gloomy,

But maybe, too,

You are dumb and doomed, see,

 

Yesterday, I was young

Just like you,

Soon, you’ll be old,

And invisible, too.
