My Age


I wish to tear my flesh apart
and show the world
my lifeless heart

Depraved minds pose as
the intellectual lot
sincere words are
considered rot

World of my age is vain
target terror, hunger pain!
Appearances here seem attractive
Why to seek which is deceptive..?

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
