How OLD Would You Be If You Didn’t Know How Old You Are?

How OLD Would You Be

If You Didn’t Know How Old You Are?

 

I’d be old enough to know
that I should feed my spirit-
So my heart never wrinkles,
nourished by the thoughts within it.

 

No longer reminded of a chronological age,
I would not be bound by a calendar page.
I would let the young woman within have free reign.
Who knows what positive things I would gain.

 

Oh, I had better hurry.
I don’t want to be late,
You see, I have a very important date.

 

P.S.

Nothing strenuous, most things are “nix”.
My back reminds me I am 86!

    You’re right, Louise. Why should we limit ourselves to the date on our birth certificates. What if we were going to live another twenty-five year? Might as well be as happy as possible while doing it. Good poem.
