Boomers Bailing

Boomer boomer
Watch tv
Commercials abound
Just for thee
Just for you
Just for me
Aging group
Yes. That’s us
In denial, so let it be
Fight it every step of the way
Silly human
Watch nature
Learn the way
When it’s your time
Then nature calls
And nothing you can do will
Undo the yours walls

Astra Zeneca
XelJanz
Xanax
Klonopin
Lyrica
Statins
Celebrex
…..
oops
side effects
more drugs

No
Not me
I’m not that boomer
Though boomer I am
Still I do fit in the plan
But not for this
Keep the meds
I’d like to hold on to my head

So far my body works just fine
No aches, no illness
Is it borrowed time
I count my blessings
I wake up with joy
No counting pills
For morning noise

Yet all around me the circle shrinks
People I know
Die, ill, meds, it stinks
Closer closer the labyrinth walk
It’s part of life
The death walk talk

  1. Time waits for no one. . . . time ticks second by second, minute by minute, hour by hour. . . day by day. We don’t now how long our lives will last, just that at some point our lives. . . our story of how we spent the time we had, will end. That is a given. . . and most of us don’t dwell on that fact.
    The important thing is how we spend that time . . . what some call “giving meaning” to the life they lead. Are they a good parent, nurturing their children to be good citizens . . . to be kind to others, respectful of their elders, to obey the rules of society. Giving your children a good education, so they may be able to get a good job and have a “better life” than their parents did.
    And all the while, time still ticks away. . . . and now that the children have begun their lives with their own “place” and no longer at home, the parents left behind feel alone. . . .feel an emptiness that filled their lives with purpose for so long, and now must find something to fill the void. Surprisingly some find “second careers” and new friends and new interests. . . . while others never get over the loneliness that fills their lives.
    We age each and every day of our lives, but we hardly notice when we are young. . . .it’s only when we reach “middle age” that we come to the realization that we are ageing. Doctor visits become “normal”, and the aches and pains from overexertion feel worse and last longer than you remember. . . so much for tennis at the club. Swimming soon becomes the preferred exercise.
    No, we can’t stop the march of time. . . . it’s what we do with that time that is important. Do the things you enjoy and be damned to those who “don’t approve” of what that is . . . . meet new people and share your story and theirs with you. . . . have fun with the time you have and don’t forget this. . . . only you knows, really knows, what makes you happy!!!!!

    • Thank you Rich!!! I love your well-thought out, detailed responses. I love the “meat” in your comments 🙂 I agree completely …. and truly, as you said, what counts most (to me) is to simply be kind! Have a wonderful day …. see you on the pages 😉 Best, Kat
