Vanity

When young we don’t care at all
at mid ego’s can fly
When old we don’t care again.

I must be getting old...starting not to care again. Nice haiku, River. :)

Teresa said...

The lovely freedom of not caring! Very nice poem.

at mid our egos can make up for all the not caring it's sandwiched between - seems crazy, doesn't it? the young and the old know where it's at... :)

River said...

I don't agree gospelwriter. I think it's important to strive for a healthy balance between~ be humbled and secure, have self love and be able to admit ones wrong.

I call this haiku~ vanity

Old age is a lot like childhood. Or maybe we know we can just get away with more when we are very young and very old. nice one.

I never cared and never will!

Nice One Shot, River!

I think the "mid" lasts a whole lot longer than we might think. It's hard to give up that which we think the world expects of us. One vanity at a time, I'm letting go.

Then I will be young and old today.

Reflections said...

But is it that we don't care, or just focus our energies on the things we value most.
