As time passes…

As time passes and life's focus
      must narrow
         old 'friends' must be allowed to slip away
            or be pushed away

I've no time for 'friends' who live in the past,
      who sound like broken recordings—the same stories,
         same complaints, same interests—always

They have quit living, learning, growing
I don't want to be dragged down and
      devoured by them—my zombie 'friends'
