Seven Stages Of Life - Poem by Sydnii Ray

Fresh life
Soft skin, New Baby
A soft cry escapes from rosebud lips
Quickly followed by a childlike gurgle
The first stage, as it was
The second age
Exploring Life
Meeting new people
Eyes opened to the world
School bag in hand
The third stage
That of the infamous lover,
Heart easily broken
Vulnerable like a baby bird
Thinking that they are invincible
Stage four
Oh what a confusing time
Turmoil of happenings
Set off, like a young bird pushed out of its nest
Flying off into an unknown life
Leaving home, yet another stage
New beginning.
At the fifth stage
Mid life crisis
Children fly away
A sudden stability, a sense of knowing
Life plan set
The sixth age shifts, comfort becomes the primary priority
Slippers, sweatshirts, and favorite pair of jeans
Worry about fashion, a thing of youth
The seventh and final stage of this long life
Cared for by others
Free of all worries
Take the days as they come,
Until they come no longer.
