Older than my body

Pablo Picasso art

i’m old.
since a child
i’m old.

i don’t know
how
not
to
be
old.

i don’t know
if want to be
other than that.

and apart from being old,
i’m nothing else.

* * *

leave me alone,
with my memories
and thoughts…

i had a great life.
no more,
no more…

        That’s one thing I love about art, it’s so subjective. I’m more a Renaissance, Gothic art girl myself.

    Take the counsel of your old
    and live to full your youth,
    so when age has you in its hold,
    your child can whisper truth.

    Even old souls get to play, Nanda. 😉
