Does This Mean I Am A Senior? - Poem by Philo Yan

A senior some say is over fifty
A senior takes life much more easy
A senior never jumps up and down
A senior takes lots of pills and frown
A senior shuffles or take slow walks
A senior prattles or never talks
A senior nibbles on food they eat
A senior quibbles the cold on feet
A senior tackles the bed each day
A senior wrinkles like a Shar Pei.

Just some fun stuff of a senior
does with the time left to do
From one senior to another senior
What brightens and chase the blue?
Happy days are with their junior
Talking, feeding are family glue
Junior's junior will climb the senior
But the senior won't have it any other
Is that what it means to be a senior?

    The spirit is young and the body is old
    But what the spirit wants is to be bold
    To feed the spirit I've been told
    Is to be still and look into the soul.
    Then even with a body's that old
    A young spirit give it a glow.
