Writing Resources from Fifteen Minutes of Fiction

The following is a piece of writing submitted by Eric on September 13, 2009
"About a man and the glorified concept of anti-aging which our culture has so willingly embraced."


The white hair shaking silently in the wind
where happiness sees no door

The light splattered on the boxes inoculate,
where grey hair sees no more

The coloured boards, alluring the aged
promoting youth.................promoting joy...............promoting life
one then sees veterans across the shop's floor

The money is then gone and science borne
upon the once elderly
now he walks out

no longer old

no longer sad

But youth and joy decline to show
for money retreats not time
and if no longer longer distressed,
or young or happy

then I ask,
what has the old man become?
