as the title suggests,,mm,yes i hit the ripe old age of 40..life begins,,so i hear,,life just carries on with the responsibilities you allready carry i think..:O)
but anyway i digress..i wrote this on my birthday,,hope you like..:O)



Hitting fourty

Be gone ye demon of vanity
Life's mirror has begun to stain
The image of me has faded
It is the time of old age.

The waters image ripples
The face awash in flames
The ship has started to sail
My life began in vain.

Forgo the sanity i have taken
My thoughts have been truly mistaken
Please understand my reason
My life is a true sensation.
