Fifty is crossed, By ill-health I am tossed, By medicines I am bossed, So philosophy is caused.


Aging Is Damaging

In life has come a void
But, life I cannot avoid

I am greatly confused
Joy is to me refused

A strange contentment
Is given appointment

May be due to aging
Still I am managing

By defeats I was hit
I have got zero profit

But, life cannot be ended
It has to be defended

Family needs my presence
They are full of innocence

Only when I now struggle
I can make them giggle

For them only top-priority
It is my incumbent duty

Only when I make sweats
Peace of mind family gets

So to work hard I decide
God will be at my side

Let Him take me as per fate
I mind not becoming late.

Some things erode, not all of them bad. It is comforting to know that the sharp edges that cut have been dulled.

Damaging indeed. But I am reminded of lines from Tennyson's "Odysseus": "Some work of noble note may yet be done / Not unbecoming men who strove with gods." Welcome!
