A State Of Mind - Poem by Rod Morris
As all of us grow older, I'm sure that we will find,
How we feel about ourselves, is just a state of mind.
Do not retire to vegetate, or sit to wait and die.
Get active, use your brain or time will pass you by.
It's no use sitting in a chair, bemused by films and soaps.
They're full of fools and dreamers, and those who only hope.
Go join a club, make new friends, and spread yourself around.
You'll find by giving of yourself, what happiness you've found.
Retirement need not be boring,
It’s the way you are inclined.
Be prepared to take on the world,
You now have the state of mind.
