Ask Anyone Aging - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Mother Nature can not be tricked,
Fooled or duped.
Ask anyone aging.
And fighting against it.
With attempts to prove this they can do.
Feeling youthful with this done,
Is different than someone...
Committed to spending time,
Finding ways to delay the signs of aging.
Looking youthful and feeling it,
No one young takes hours to do.
And rare it is to hear anyone young,
Discussing with another...
What pills they take to await for pains and aches,
Not to be noticed before they become numbed.
'You're looking pretty spry today.
With that pep in your walk.
How do you manage to keep so youthful? '
~I exercise and pray each day.
And I prescribe to keeping numb,
From head to toe wherever I go.~
'How do you do that? '
~With kept faith.
And an intake of the right pills.~
'I do tea and vodka.'
But I'm not into doing slow strolls,
With a cane.~
