After the nearly before

entry picture
Before the after
I'm now nearly bald
once considered shorn,
like now nearly dead
not being un-born.
I used to be young
but now I'm not old,
like being informed
not being untold.
I used to be slight
but now I'm substantial,
like being skint
then becoming financial.

This is cleverly put together and it really held my interest. As I read it I equated to my own feelings and experience of life. Good illustration. Did you do it?
Thanks for this
