Reality

Here I stand
Looking into the standing mirror
What have you done for yourself?
I ask=
Finding no answer, a blank expression
I Smile.

Reminiscing, thinking, pondering
How sudden reality hits
When you feel the universe of the funfair

About to turn silver
Yet I ask
What have you done for yourself?
No result, just a blank expression
A feeling of emptiness

A waning star
That once shone bright
Odd, weird, uninspiring
Can it be ignited once more?
Still no answer, except the feeling that
It’s probable

The pressure mounted
A staff about to be passed on
A legacy, into unprepared hands……..
