Gamers, it’s never too late to think about retirement.

To Cruz I say “Your cat is having golden thoughts (su gata tienes pensas de or)”
Jack Kerouac, Tristessa   

Press on. If you are in school or working for a living. It is never too late to late to think about retirement.   

You want to live life to its fullest when you’re young,
yet you want to save some health and money,
for when you no longer work and can enjoy life when retirement has begun.   

My coworker is retiring today, which gives me some time to reflect,
What will I want to do when my working days are numbered?
What will I spend my days doing?
Writing sonnets, drinking at noon, or looking for friends and family to reconnect?   

Everyday you make a decision to invest,
it’s not a monetary choice, but one of time.
Will you work on establishing a rapport with the world
or will you stay indoors and be a recluse and think of the future in jest?   

If it wasn’t for online games, you would never interact with people,
yet conversations on the internet,
playing halo speaking of “noobs” is quite feeble,   

When it comes to retirement, I want to enjoy my day like this:
Wake up. Exercise, simply so I have the strength to sit in my chair the rest of the day,
Then spend the rest of the morning with a controller in my fist,   

After lunch, I’ll walk the dogs and then come back to finish another round of gaming.
Yes this future can be true if you plan retirement right.
Go to school, focus on your job, and next thing you know this goal you’ll be obtaining.   

Congratulations to Mike for retirement of work,
you paid your dues and now it’s time to no longer shirk,
on those projects waiting for you at home.
write a book,
travel somewhere and take a look.   

There is a future ahead of us all. How will you spend your golden years?
With golden thoughts and enjoying what you do?
Or slaving away regretting your decision to not persevere?   

Follow your dreams and surely you’ll find happiness in your future idleness
known as retirement.
Must be nice not to begrudge Mondays,
enjoying your life,
void of the cubicle and office walls confinement.
