When Do We Grow Old!

14 Oct

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

I woke up in the morning,
mind refreshed and full of hope.
There is so much I want to do-
all within my scope.

 

My mind is willing, my mind alert-
I’ll spring right out of bed.
My mind is saying, “Go girl”
but my back says, “Whoa” instead.

 

Ego! Yes, ego is the culprit
in this aging game we play.
I don’t mind saying “I’m 87″
But,” getting old??? “No way!”

 

“None are as old as those who
have outlived their enthusiasm”

Henry David Thoreau
