Get your own life, mine is booked

Go ahead and mock me from a distance
You have no idea the battles I have fought
Over and over time and tide have conspired against me
Love or its leavings are not burning flames, but sustaining embers
May you know why my face is lined in wrinkles
It is not the years my friend but the miles on the chassis
Frequent heart aches keep a heart supple, responsive to new beginnings
But no more should you mock what you don't know about, find your own life

  1. Agree - also reminds me of what a very wise fellow says to me - it is the mileage, not the distance :) i'm lucky to know such wise people
