J.J. Campbell

burn the candle at both
ends
 
live your best life or
something that resembles
something that would
make your mother blush
 
never fear death or
consequences
 
and by the time your
40’s roll around
 
hopefully you are married
have a good job and are
comfortable
 
for when you aren’t
 
the body starts to give
up and death is a constant
terror knocking at your
door or the one person
that never stops calling
 
life may begin at 40
when luck happened
to fall in your favor
along the way
 
for the rest of us, 40
is the reminder that
cheating death is not
as fun as they make
it look in the movies
