Will They Will

Age is definable but never still–
we try to hold it back, but still
our age continues to rise

We linger in the still dreams lost
ages ago, unable to move on,
still refiguring the past

Must we always be aging children?
still youthful to our inner mirror, but
aged into bitters

Into a stillness of chimeric eternity,
searching for an ageless portal
stilled beyond time

Day 21 of NaPoWriMo asks for repetition. I’m not sure this is exactly what they had in mind, but it’s where I ended up.

  1. I suppose we are aging children whether we like it or not, but we don’t have to keep regretting the early stages when we didn’t know about regret.
    I like it. There’s enough repetition in the ideas. You don’t have to keep repeating the same words.
