What will it be like when I get old
Will I still hop on my bike
And ride around town
Will I still want to be someone
And not just sit around
I don't want to be like other adults
Cause they've already died
Cool and condescending, fossilized
Will I be rich will I be poor
Will I still sleep on the floor

What will it be like when I get
What will it be like when I get
What will it be like when I get old

Will I still kiss my girlfriend
And try to grab her ass
Will I still hate the cops and have no class
Will all my grown up friends say
They've seen it all before
They say hey act your age and I'm immature
Will I do myself proud or only what's allowed

What will it be like when I get
What will it be like when I get
What will it be like when I get old

Will I sit around and talk about the old days
Sit around and watch t.v.
I never want to go that way
Never burn out not fade away
As I travel through my time
Will I like what I find

What will it be like when I get
What will it be like when I get
What will it be like when I get old

daxle I don't think much about being old. I always think 5 years ahead and that's enough to keep me occupied. And there's no use planning past that because so much is beyond my control.
Sometimes I think about my dad never having a chance to get old. It's turned him into some sort of jimi hendrix in my mind. Part of me believes "it's better to burn out than to be forgotten".

Miner Why when I am still so young, do I feel so very very old?

Offline near enough all my friends and acquaintances are much older than myself, I understand and can communicate with older people far easier, and I have more fun with them. To often do I find myself saying things like "god this has changed, do you remember when....?", "it wasn’t like that when I had to do it" or "has it really been that long! Its amazing how fast time has flown by, it only seems like yesterday, not 5 years ago”?

If I feel so old now, and my mind is so weary already, what chance do I have for staying at least reasonably young in the future?

Nerb Old? What is that exactly.
I see the whole World grow old,
while i grow young.
The World becomes Adult,
as i become a Child.
The World looks to Death,
While i look to LiFe.
My God has Saved us from death
by death.
I am not old but young.

Inanna I did not want to write this...
Sickly old woman
Hiding behind her glass house
Poor thing
Alone with her mouse
Her cat is now dead
She makes her queen bed
Sore thing
Suffering in her head
Bitterness is so sad
She is really mad
Playing sickly games
Like a dumb child
Is she insane?
I can se her cry

Patty When I get old, I want to be healthy and happy. I want to have the ideal, quiet cottage away from the buzzing, fast material youth, but among the fresh youths of nature and beauty. I want to be reminded of the beauty of life.

I should probably focus on that now, while I'm young.

charlie S’io credesse che mia risposta fosse
A persona che mai tornasse al mondo,
Questa fiamma staria senza piu scosse.
Ma perciocche giammai di questo fondo
Non torno vivo alcun, s’i’odo il vero,
Senza tema d’infamia ti rispondo.


LET us go then, you and I,
When the evening is spread out against the sky
Like a patient etherised upon a table;
Let us go, through certain half-deserted streets,
The muttering retreats
Of restless nights in one-night cheap hotels
And sawdust restaurants with oyster-shells:
Streets that follow like a tedious argument
Of insidious intent
To lead you to an overwhelming question …
Oh, do not ask, “What is it
Let us go and make our visit.

In the room the women come and go
Talking of Michelangelo.

The yellow fog that rubs its back upon the window-panes,
The yellow smoke that rubs its muzzle on the window-panes
Licked its tongue into the corners of the evening,
Lingered upon the pools that stand in drains,
Let fall upon its back the soot that falls from chimneys,
Slipped by the terrace, made a sudden leap,
And seeing that it was a soft October night,
Curled once about the house, and fell asleep.

And indeed there will be time
For the yellow smoke that slides along the street,
Rubbing its back upon the window-panes;
There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;
There will be time to murder and create,
And time for all the works and days of hands
That lift and drop a question on your plate;
Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea.

In the room the women come and go
Talking of Michelangelo.

And indeed there will be time
To wonder, “Do I dareand, “Do I dare
Time to turn back and descend the stair,
With a bald spot in the middle of my hair—
[They will say: “How his hair is growing thin!”]
My morning coat, my collar mounting firmly to the chin,
My necktie rich and modest, but asserted by a simple pin—
[They will say: “But how his arms and legs are thin!”]
Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse.

For I have known them all already, known them all
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons;
I know the voices dying with a dying fall
Beneath the music from a farther room.
So how should I presume?

And I have known the eyes already, known them all—
The eyes that fix you in a formulated phrase,
And when I am formulated, sprawling on a pin,
When I am pinned and wriggling on the wall,
Then how should I begin
To spit out all the butt-ends of my days and ways?
And how should I presume?

And I have known the arms already, known them all—
Arms that are braceleted and white and bare
[But in the lamplight, downed with light brown hair!]
It is perfume from a dress
That makes me so digress?
Arms that lie along a table, or wrap about a shawl.
And should I then presume?
And how should I begin?
. . . . .
Shall I say, I have gone at dusk through narrow streets
And watched the smoke that rises from the pipes
Of lonely men in shirt-sleeves, leaning out of windows

I should have been a pair of ragged claws
Scuttling across the floors of silent seas.
. . . . .
And the afternoon, the evening, sleeps so peacefully!
Smoothed by long fingers,
Asleep … tired … or it malingers,
Stretched on the floor, here beside you and me.
Should I, after tea and cakes and ices,
Have the strength to force the moment to its crisis?
But though I have wept and fasted, wept and prayed,
Though I have seen my head [grown slightly bald] brought in upon a platter,
I am no prophet—and here’s no great matter;
I have seen the moment of my greatness flicker,
And I have seen the eternal Footman hold my coat, and snicker,
And in short, I was afraid.

And would it have been worth it, after all,
After the cups, the marmalade, the tea,
Among the porcelain, among some talk of you and me,
Would it have been worth while,
To have bitten off the matter with a smile,
To have squeezed the universe into a ball
To roll it toward some overwhelming question,
To say: “I am Lazarus, come from the dead,
Come back to tell you all, I shall tell you all”—
If one, settling a pillow by her head,
Should say: “That is not what I meant at all.
That is not it, at all

And would it have been worth it, after all,
Would it have been worth while,
After the sunsets and the dooryards and the sprinkled streets,
After the novels, after the teacups, after the skirts that trail along the floor—
And this, and so much more
It is impossible to say just what I mean!
But as if a magic lantern threw the nerves in patterns on a screen:
Would it have been worth while
If one, settling a pillow or throwing off a shawl,
And turning toward the window, should say:
“That is not it at all,
That is not what I meant, at all
. . . . .
No! I am not Prince Hamlet, nor was meant to be;
Am an attendant lord, one that will do
To swell a progress, start a scene or two,
Advise the prince; no doubt, an easy tool,
Deferential, glad to be of use,
Politic, cautious, and meticulous;
Full of high sentence, but a bit obtuse;
At times, indeed, almost ridiculous—
Almost, at times, the Fool.

I grow old … I grow old …
I shall wear the bottoms of my trousers rolled.

Shall I part my hair behind? Do I dare to eat a peach?
I shall wear white flannel trousers, and walk upon the beach.
I have heard the mermaids singing, each to each.

I do not think that they will sing to me.

I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.

We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
Till human voices wake us, and we drown.
