This shows my feelings about speaking as I get older


Am I getting old?
I confuse the words in my speech,
I have always ‘gabbled’ but now,
Even I can’t understand some words
That I try to form.

Am I getting senile?
Sometimes the words that I had,
In my once proud vocabulary
I cannot seem to recall quickly enough,
To try and say aloud.

Am I getting past it?
The words eventually come to my mind
But make no sense, as the conversation
Has moved on past the subject for
Which they were meant.

Am I getting worried?
I try not to be, but the nagging doubt
Forms in my mind, and the only way
That I can seem to express it,
Is on this page!


Forgetting, Old Age, Words

I have been writing poetry for a few years now and use it as a release for all types of feelings. I do not follow any set rules poetry as I find I cannot get the feeling correct if I use the rules.

we shall not leave you alone
and hold ur hands ...
as we all etch towards an unknown land ..
called senile ..
near by the
River Nile
