Hour 1: Bitter Endings

Bitter Endings

Too bright the light

For these old eyes

They see only darkness now

Turn down the sun

Let light be damned

Let dawn await my dusk


Too fast the world

For these old bones

They seek only comfort now

Turn off the gears

Let progress pause

Hold tomorrow ‘til my day is done


Too cold the wind

For this old skin

Worn thin as paper now

Turn up the heat

Let oceans rise

Someone else will pay my bill


Too strange the times

For this old mind

It cannot comprehend

Turn back the clock

Undo the lies

The truest way is mine


Turn down, turn off

Turn up, turn back

What harm?

I’ll be gone soon


Too bright, too fast

Too cold, too strange

Though it may be

Too late for you

    1. It’s actually meant to be cynical. Consider this quote:
      “I’m fed up to the ears with old men dreaming up wars for young men to die in.”
      ― George S. McGovern
