I’m getting older

I throw my back out

On a regular basis

And I find myself second guessing

Do I want more tattoos and piercings?

Both my brothers, god bless them

Are buying houses

Raising kids

While I budget my week

To afford some chocolate and tobacco

My friends on the outside

Say the girls we used to know

Have let themselves go

I almost love them more for that

And wonder which of them

Might still want to know me

As they enter the stage of life

Where your friends become

The parents of your kids friends

I still feel there will be time for me

Family and a career

But it’s scary

Ageing fast
