how much of my life have i spent,

my time and youth

perished in empty, dirty rooms,

to have but these callouses to show;

to beam wearied chalk bones,

brittle before my age reached its time

for bones to be calcite dust

i do fear

too much

    Really strong poem with minimal words … I like it a great deal.

    • Thank you. The anxiety and pressures and such really can rob us of a lot of wonderful experiences. Hopefully, we learn to manage. So many things I wish I’d done…
