(925) Age - Poem by Melvina Germain

What is age, you ask?
Nothing but a mere number, I say.
After-all, it doesn’t state your worth.
It’s a way of knowing the number
of years spent here on earth.

Don’t let it stop you from doing what you want to do.
If you can kick up your heels at the age of 62,
and Father time hasn’t caught up with you.
Take your time choose a fun career.
You may be good for another twenty years.

    I hear what your saying Melvina: O) ....but my mind says one thing and my body squacks if I could just get them together on the same page again
    I might think that way again: O)
