Getting old sucks! You are born into this world all innocent and cuddly, with a whole world and future before you. There are dreams and goals and hopes and all that supposedly good stuff. But what happens? Life shreds your dreams and hopes. You cling to a few precious moments that brought a few, a very few, good memories to life. Then all hell breaks loose. You get old. All those dreams and hopes are shattered. You watch family and friends die. Your own health and finances go down the toilet. You can't do any of the things you used to do. You aren't physically able to. You stop dreaming and hoping because you have learned how hopeless it is. Well, I guess you still have one hope. For death. For a quick and easy one. I really don't understand why people bring babies into this world when there is so little to look forward. A few happy moments and then death. And death does not come easily. Oh, how I wish it would. Or how I wish I could make it do so.
