Spot on. Brevity is the soul of the wit. Your poem illustrates that well.
Your poem is pretty well right on. As we age our beings become more frail usually. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn

The whole process sketched in 12 words! Incredible!
I live the experience. Oooooh!
This is what exactly is old age! Enjoyed this miniscule of a poem!
Old age is not for the fainthearted as it has no mercy as our frail bodies grind to a halt, great write!
Succinct and to the point and this is what old age is.............Simon..........very nice
