The Retired Bloke


The light dims

It seems as though

It won’t shine brightly

Will never again 


The mist descends

Shrouding the world

In a hazy glow

Will not go


Life’s full eclipse

Blackening skies

As though undercover

Will not recover


Will I ever 

Forever have the will

To be who I want to be

By my free will.

    Good different usage of just one important word. Needed question asked as a finalé Thank you for this interesting read.
