Life is a series of choices. Every step is a choice, an option, a decision. We try our best to make these choices based on what we know. What we pick may not be based on what is right and what is wrong, but what we believe in our minds and hearts. Whatever we do decide, we have to compromise. It is always one or the other.

The World has made me old

Who would have thought that time would pass by so quickly. I dont mean that a lot of things changed since the last time I sat back to look at it, but I feel old, and not in the sense that my back hurts, but inside my chest is a feeling, a feeling old.

I cant say it is only because of time, because time does make a person feel old, but the World can have a much larger effect. A person can feel old just by noticing the world around them, and everything in it.

However, compared to an Oak tree in a forest, Im probably very young.

I imagine sitting on a lake with mountains in the horizon and the sun setting behind them. I feel young and refreshed. I know why I want to be there. I understand life, people, the world. I feel alive.

I imagine sitting in a bus, in a crowded place, looking at people around me and what theyre doing. Where are those people headed? Why are they going there? Where did they come from? Then I ask myself, Where am I going? What am I doing? Where do I come from?

I have no answer. Not to my questions at least.

I look into my chest and wonder, why is it that I am feeling older.

    From my experience, I personally feel older when I sit and contemplate, just like you are doing. When we keep ourselves busy, we immerse ourselves into the unaging world of constant work, but when you lay back and look at things, and see what you miss out on, or what certain events or things mean, then yes, you feel old

    You are as young as you feel and I feel like a kid!

    Thats my simple outlook!

    I feel old. Double my real age or a bit more.

    Whenever I look at the dim future of this world, I feel old, for I remember a happy past far away, long gone.

    Whenever I look at the dimwits of this world, I feel old, for I remember what meant to be a man in the past, far away long gone.

    Though I’ve been around for a mere quarter of a century, I feel old.

    Hmm, i’d have to agree with Marzouq on this one. You are as young as you feel.
