The Old Guy … In My Opinion

Old Man

.

Old man sitting alone in the dark.

What was just yesterday,

Now a long distant memory.

Oh, the past lurks behind all of us.

.

In silence, rocking endlessly,

Without direction,

Without purposeful intent,

Without a breath of protest.

.

Old man sitting in the dark,

Watching the parade,

Of unrealized hopes, denied ambitions,

Of dreams that withered and died.

.

The darkness hides so much,

And can be a Master speaking harshly.

But the light of day whispers promised truth,

To an old man sitting alone in the dark.

I was told by my grandfather that if you are destined to hang you'll never drown. I have never been afraid of water . . .

  3. John, your poems should be published. Absolutely beautiful. It touched me like one other in particular: “Where does she Go”. You have wonderful messages.

    • Ms Saundra I don’t know if I will ever have enough to put into a book collection. This is the first poem since my Sweetheart passed away nearly three years ago. I don’t think I have the time left to fill the pages of even a modest size book. Thank you for your sentiments. Greatly appreciated. g

    • The Old Man who made it so far and at times wonders about a world without common courtesy, human decency and treating others as you wish to be treated. Ms eloquent, thank you for your kind words. You are a powerful writer and I enjoy your body of work. Continue unflinchingly and do not others detour you passions. g

  12. Maybe I’m an old man sitting in the dark too, although I find that the dark can be congenial. I like the selfies you’ve included here, and they go so well with your words. Keep thinking of the promised truth. Adrian
