I'm scared

by jenintorre

I'm scared
Because I'm old
no future
lies ahead.
My friends
are getting ill,
some of them,
now dead.
I'm scared
because I'm old,
can't do what
I did before,
simple things
I used to do
so easily,
now a chore.
My body's weak
I've so much pain.
I feel confused
am I insane?
I'm scared.
