elderly people's concern

didn’t realise I was getting old
till some people put me in an Old Peoples home
elderly people's concernover the door
I thought I was doing all right
thought I was a good boy
a decent chap
surprised me that they thought of me
like that
thought of myself as a youngish chap
I was miles out

born 1924, 29th August 1924
now it feels pretty old
not that bad
not that bad looking
not doing so bad
(lots of things you cant do
was in a very skilled job etc.)
become older by nature
