Ancient

by joetwo

Older than numbers

Aged beyond counting

The fast growth of youth slowed into reverse

Degradation of the body setting in

#

Filled with memory

Weighed down by experience

Every moment an homage to the past

Living life surrounded by ghosts

#

Ancient to others eyes

But in the inward looking self

The minds eyes goes into slow reverse

Back to long-lost youth

The return of the inner child to the fore.
