I Am Not a Young Man Anymore – Written Monday 19th October 2020 (Aged 45)

I Am Not a Young Man Anymore

i am not a young man anymore
however, ‘man’, is defined
and i do not know how i got here
hard to follow the line
when did battlegrounds
and fairgrounds become a home?
when did i put down self indulgence
and stopped clinging to ideas of being alone?
when did hang ups just hang out
and we just got used to one another
i am not a young man anymore
and i can see clearly
the number of years that have gone before
but i cannot remember the events
that built their foundations
at least not enough to justify the time
