Daily Prompt: New Wrinkles

You wake up one day and realize you’re ten years older than you were the previous night. Beyond the initial shock, how does this development change your life plans?


age and years, i count them as they pass

i build the memories, the lessons from the past

but when a decade come swiftly, sure, I’d be shocked, I’d be confused

well that’s a whole 10 years! alot of chances missed, opportunities to use

prolly spend each day as my last, is the one sure thing I’d do

be with friends, and with families, however they’re few

write as much as i can, read as many books here and there –

travel incessantly, gain wisdom, share as much love and care

for life is so short, everyone says and it’s true

you would want to leave a mark, to your fellowmen, a greater world view.
