I’m older than I used to be
I still feel young, but
fifty is just around the corner

Time has flown
and so many memories are gone
erased by the pain of life
how much time is left for new memories?

beauty fades
physical strength weakens
but I’m still the same inside

I no longer have time
for your bullshit
or yours
or yours

I don’t need the turbulence and uncertainty
of fair-weather friends
of those who live to put you down

I have all the time for wisdom
truth and love

get new perspectives
open your mind

Age is just a number
what you do matters
the ripple will be felt
long after you are gone

Don’t waste your time on trivial things
live now
while you can
