Living My Life In Reverse

Contributed by jamesstockdale on Tuesday, 11th October 2016 @ 12:55:31 PM in AEST
Topic: abstract

I evil ym efil ni esrever
Ot uoy ti yam mees rehtar esrevrep
Rof em ti tsuj ylpmis skrow
Sa s/'/ti reven neeb desraeher
Gnikrow ym yaw ot eht tsap
Ton gniyrrow woh gnol
Ym erutuf lliw tsal
On smaerd gniog drawrof
On deen ot draoh
Dlo seiromem ecno derots
Htiw on wen sworromot
Efil t/'/now gnirb em
On erom sworros

I live my life in reverse
To you it may seem rather perverse
For me it just simply works
As it/'/s never been rehearsed
Working my way to the past
Not worrying how long
My future will last
No dreams going forward
No need to hoard
Old memories once stored
With no new tomorrows
Life won/'/t bring me
No more sorrows

James! A clever and well executed mirror image of your poem had me running for a pen to dicipher you message to us!
While I love the idea of living life in reverse, and getting younger every year, and retiring when we are 16...I fear the child delivery would be highly unpopular!
How clever of you to write not only backwards but backwards within the backwards! This was entertaining and your message is not lost in its critic delivery. No more sorrows from the mouth of a true gentleman. Hats off to you sir. A rite write alright! And so say we all. softerware

Benjamin Button, is that you?
Starting from old, down to brand new
Your sorrows may end
But your loved ones will spend
The rest of their days feeling blue.

I tried to write happy new year in reverse, but I burst too many brain cells in the process! 😬

// That first stanza hurt my brain. Talk about a clever delivery!!!

Next time I might bring a mirror to read this.

Thank you ever so much TimmyJimmy. Or am I TimmyJimmy now? I get so confused.
