AS I GROW OLDER…

By Neel Anil Panicker

As I grow older I find myself turning increasingly sceptical
At a world peopled with narrow men and their narrow ways.

As I grow older I find myself turning increasingly sceptical
At the moments that endlessly stretch into hours and then days.

As I grow older I find myself turning increasingly sceptical
At the futility of pursuing unattainable desires.

As I grow older I find myself turning increasingly sceptical
At the sight of yesterdays’ dreams caught in unyielding spires.

As I grow older I find myself turning increasingly sceptical
At the harshness of the mirror that throws back such blank stares.

As I grow older I find myself turning increasingly sceptical
At the lives that people lead hiding behind hideous, dark glares.
