The Curse – 18th April 2022

Surviving in a world with nostalgia
A regret of living in the now
Is there an old way of living
That people have forgotten somehow?
But it’s a useless battle to fight
To smell the glories of the past
The foibles of a new generation
Ensure it will never last
The curse of the old man
Constantly shaking fists at the skies
They forget their own youth
When they had the time of their lives

For years, maybe even today, sometimes I think ‘What exactly am I going to do with my life? What is my career going to be? I’m only 80 for God’s sake!’

Anne Tyler
