, , , , ,

I glanced in the mirror
And found a stray white hair
Peeking out
But completely unaware

That was the moment
When life laughed at me
Not for the future
But for the years that showed upon me

I had studied so hard
And now working so long
Saving each penny
While I want to make more money

The days are just passing
While I am striving
To make an impression
Which is my obsession

I stand here today and wonder
What price I have paid
Long gone is my innocence
And life is there to stray

The days to come will be passed in apathy
I really wish, that when time comes
The years that have gone by
Would not dare to mock me with sympathy
