Aging


Growing old is but a state of mind
You can enjoy your age or feel sorry
For yourself and sit around and pine
You can make your self feel happy or
Blue whichever you choose is up to you
Remember you can be old in age but
Young at heart you've gained wisdom
Which can play a big part in whatever
New adventure you may want to start
So quit trying to elude the age you are
Accept it and reach for the stars
Follow your dreams although they may
Seem afar you've traveled life's road
Long enough to know the score and you
Can handle anything life could have in store
Keep up the faith it will open many doors
Believe in yourself and don't worry about
Your age for growing older is just another phase.

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
