Beware the Aging of Youth

My flesh often
betrays me
and then the spirit follows suit.
I find myself looking
more and more
for familiarity
and ritual to my day.
I use to love, love, love
that no two days, hours or seconds
of my life were the same.
I told myself
do everything now!
So when I am old and grey
I shall have memories
to sustain til the end.
Now that I am graying,
I fall asleep
waiting for
the memories to come.
