Poem: Age

You reach a certain age
and assumptions are made.

You don’t need a job
Your mortgage is paid
You’ve had your life
Your opinion doesn’t count
Soon you’ll be gone
and the world will be mine

What kind of world is that?

    If you think about it you are of no great importance at any time of your existence except to a few close loved ones.
    The world will carry on quite happily without me , you or anyone else. Even important players in life’s drama like leaders , kings, the rich and famous are soon forgotten.
