Mid life crisis

Mid-life crisis is when everyone around you is getting married.
The time when deep down inside, you are actually worried.

You have no clue where your life is heading.
You experience moments, the ones which you have been dreading.

Your ex gets married and is blessed with a baby boy.
While, when at McD, you still expect a happy meal and a toy.

People make references about you growing old.
And you wish to punch them in the face, bruised and cold.

You plan for your Masters but that doesn’t happen.
Everyone moves ahead and this gets you maddened.

You start caring less about your hairstyle or the length of your tie.
And the receding hairline or the beautiful moon in the night.

You give more importance to words like career, ambition, work and promotion.
While giving none for stuff like family, beach, chill out and attraction.

You put on a suit and wish ‘Happy Married Life’ to your peers.
But the thought of you going nowhere is something that you fear.

You keep reminding yourself that the good is yet to come.
And that everything will be perfectly back to square one.

However, when you continue procrastinating, you know this ain’t true.
You know you have got problems in your head which aren’t few.

I’m going through a mid-life crisis myself and there are many things to fear.
If only I could say, “Fuck this shit, I am out of here”.
