Age - Poem by Sylvia Chidi

Are you in your sixties?
Common don't be rigid
Don't make age make you livid
Age can be flawless and lawless

Age is just a number
In any particular order
We may count our experiences
But they will not always match up

Age is a blast
For some memories hold fast
For others memories fade fast
And there is never an age that will last

Are you in your forties?
Common don't be frigid
The numbers come and go with a rapid pace
Slowly we must accept to grow old with grace

Age is just a digit
In youth, age we inherit
With old age one needs a permit
And both lives are usually of high merit

Are you in your teens?
How splendid!
That life moves rapid
Life could easily become valid or invalid

Age is an abstract
You can minus, add or subtract
But our ups and downs don't always add up
Age can take you to the top or make you complete flop

Age is just a figure
That in every passing moment we must endure
It is symbol of life!
That bites into the veins of society like a knife

Ignore all, ignore all
For age smiles upon us a simple joke
Sleeping on our skins as it pokes and pokes
Age is just a disguise and a harmless quote
