I was born old
like my father before me
but it was always in my mind
Now I feel old
in my body, and in my mind
I am always so tired
And I just can’t be the way I was before.
My joints crack, my head aches, my muscles are soft
and struggle to do the things that came easily to them
I feel old
Is it my schedule, my diet, my outlook on life?
Has the world beaten me back or have I defeated myself.
They say its all downhill after 25,
and right now that certainly feels true.
But you know what is the worst part?
I can’t sit down and eat like I used to.
16 year old me, you have no idea how lucky you were.
You were strong, you were fast, and my god you could eat whatever you wanted and a lot of it.
Like, a lot.
Goodbye, fair princess of yesteryear.
I am breaking down, little by little…
I need to run more.
