Daily Prompt: To taper off to No-one

via Daily Prompt: Taper

To taper off to No-one:

As a child, I started as Myself so big and strong.

Certain, corporeal, vast.

I grew, and I expanded alongside my horizons; Sun, illuminate my vitality.

Now I am older

Now years have passed

During which I taper, and I dwindle, & I recoil back in upon myself.

My horizons: they are now the slick walls of my own mind.

My strength: it ebbs and it wanes and how pitifully it mews.

The vitality that was mine own Self: it tapers.

May No thing meet me at my end.
