    Already Old and Alone

    Never thought I'd end up my age and be alone but here I am...no man, no children, no job, no life.... it all stinks.  Spend 99% of my time completely alone.  Never would have thought I'd have  a lonely empty life but here I am.  I'm sure I'll...

    I'm not afraid of it,
