Memories!

That rare glance in the bathroom mirror

made him realize time had not been good

all he had left was flashes of memories

what could have been but never was

so much had wanted to achieve in his life

but decisions made had shaped the path

never felt envy for those who achieved

their very busy materialistic aspirations

some had done well many overwhelmed

just to be better and gain more status

now broken and burned out or passed on

for him that existance had never longed!

 

Life was more than the battle to become rich

yet it was the society that was pushed hard

the mega rich middle working class and poor

to him everyone was the same a human being

but people were divided and socially graded

many with endless money a superior breed

treating the masses merely as their slaves

to do their bidding and forever rule their lives

as the majority struggled to even exist

the domineering plundered the earths resources

with no regard for damages to the environment

making their own rules with no care or consent!

 

As endless wars ravaged destroying civilizations

with most unable to sustain a safe living standard

the aging man could only reflect on his own state

he counted himself more fortunate than most

had many problems but could still sit in safety

but knew that nobody was really safe anymore

the threat of global warming and overpopulation

with an unseen enemy never far from your door

worried about future generations sustainability

always the threat of world conflicts escalating

and natures continues instability for humanity

and the path of mankind’s evil depravity!

 

His only comfort life for him was nearly at an end!
