I’m Counting On...

I’m Counting On...


My fingers, 

those I’ve got left.

Which are beginning, to gnarl.

While the tips, 

have lost all their feeling.

Just like my toes......

I still feel the chill.

Age, is catching me up!

It’s running me down. 

Just like the numbers, 


Attached to my name.

Just an old soldier,

slowly, fading away.

But my body’s screaming, 

it’s reminders !

In a here and now, muscle, 


Kinda way.

Not being soporous 


.....by any means.
