Free verse poem about living life idly
As I hesitantly grow older,
The others grow older too.

Growing stagnant,
I watch others continue to flourish,
Bettering themselves,
Moving on.

A grievous growth,
My memories on standby.
I can't help but see families grow
And hear of prideful adventures.

Growing stagnant,
I've nothing to share.
Still, all alone; I'm still
As time etches forward.

Motionless in time,
With not a thing to show
Save the wrinkles and gray,
Mapping out my pain.

Deteriorating in this painful existance,
Watching the others grow older
As I grow stagnant, still.
