The Tipping Point

The Tipping Point

Sooner or later,
Things what they are,

No matter how healthy
you are;
How crisp 
your mind;
How confident
you be,

The tipping point arrives,

A place of apprehension,
Of uncertainty,
Of no going back.

Sooner or later,
Things what they are,

Sight declines to dim,
Sounds muddy to faint,
Balance wobbles to uncertain,

A place of apprehension,
Of uncertainty,
Of no going back.

Sooner or later,
Things what they are,

Memories melt away,
Vocabulary dwindles,
Friendships lose touch,

A place of apprehension,
Of uncertainty,
Of no going back.

Sooner or later,
Things what they are.

Muscles disappear,
Weight dissolves,
Doctoring too frequent,

A place of apprehension,
Of uncertainty,
Of no going back.

Sooner or later,
Things what they are,

No matter how healthy
you are;
How crisp 
your mind;
How confident
you be,

The tipping point arrives.
