looking back

when you reach old age, the world has changed.  you yearn for simpler times, you feel out of touch.  there are more unfamiliar people around and the crowds seem to go on forever.  the quiet moments you once experienced in the past are now replaced with background noise that never dies off.  you feel more resigned to leaving this earth.  your time has truly past you by and you know it and accept it.  this is actually a good thing because it causes you to realize that passing away is part of the cycle of life and that you have lived into a new age that belongs to the new generation.  it’s time to let go and say goodbye.
