Credo

I am thinking but

my mind is blank

I used to run like a cheetah

now I crawl like a tank

I used to be high

with dreams desires and notions

Now I seek peace and quiet

Away from commotions

Did I suddenly grow old

Did my bones feel the cold

Winter comes to my household

Will we survive or will we fold

I have dodged and swerved

I have bit bullets and navigated many a curve

As I polish my steel Valerian

I leave behind women whom I love

My pain is masked in my headphones

My glasses hide that I am Superman

There were little obstacles I could dodge when younger

When they asked for volunteers I used to say I can

Now I am cynical and in my middle age

My bank balance has quelled my rage

They tell me I will recover this is just a phase

I don’t care any more for he spotless memories I need to erase

What is reality and what is a farce

What were dilemmas and what was confusion

What was necessity and what is greed

What is stubbornness and what is my creed
