The contemplation of life is very strong in this poem. The realisation that one has aged, time has passed, yet regrets seem to surface in this author's mind. Have they truly lived their life like they wanted? If they have been alive so long, then how come they have struggled to find themselves, and truly get to know themselves. This poem is a very deep poem, holding a lot of meaning inside the words, how we treat ourselves, and how we treat life. Knowing oneself would bring such wisdom and peace. Powerful write.
