The Weirdness of I

I’ve never been one to act my age.
‘Cept I am starting to feel my age act upon me.

By now most have been married;
Divorced and married again.

The children are off to collage
In the workforce or slumming at home.

Most people my age wouldn’t give a rat’s ass about the things that move me.
I don’t give a rat’s ass about the few things that move them.

Yet I have become increasingly aware this past year.
How much I stick out.

At Wizard World – Comic Con
I’m the old guy with the wizard’s staff.

Not Gandalf yet.
But I’m working on it.

The soul is young.
The body ages.

Yet I don’t know how to be anything other then myself,
Acting my mental age.

51 going on 32.
51 going from half full to half empty.
