You Meet The Criteria - Poem by Connie Webb

I received a letter today
That said you meet the criteria
For osteoporosis.
At first I despaired,
But then after thinking it over
I remembered about
Nothing lasting forever,
Long live impermanence!
Just enjoy today!
Stop fearing a fall
Get on your bike
And ride like the wind!
I pedaled and pedaled
I felt strong as nails
And for now
I can do all kinds of things
And I will.
So I meet the criteria?
But for now
