Losing Grit (Maybe)

Long ago I believed

Nothing was worse

Than living in fear

Of those I was related

To, despised by.

Being alone didn’t scare

Me…I was good at it, had

Lived it throughout life in

Interior, mental world…

I possessed plenty grit.

But I hadn’t counted on

Growing old…seeing my

Independence eroded

By inches, like gritty

Shoreline, each year.
