Stressed by Age

Looking for poetry about aging and birthdays and the stress of it - here find two poems and quotes that express both of these thoughts but with a bit of humor.

Do Not Be Stressed
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012

It's that time again to say happy birthday,
To someone who is always so great.
Another year has gone past you,
Ain't birthdays something we love to hate.

Don't be stressed about getting older,
We all have to age at some point.
It's nice to have someone to warn us,
And you are the one we appoint.

So tell us how aging has affected you,
Are you wrinkled, exhausted or sore?
Aging can be very nasty,
So glad you are the one keeping score.

Try not to think about getting older,
Think of it as becoming wise.
Okay that last statement is way too funny,
I should not be telling such lies.


Aging is Fun
Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012

Aging fun
Growing old is,
Lots of fun,
Allow me to share,
The obvious pun.

Of course this fun,
Is not the truth,
Is aging all that,
Fun to you?

Baldness, greying,
Wrinkles, and more.
Is not my idea of
Aging galore.

But maybe things will be different for you.
Do not let the stress of age
Make you blue
Live life, be engaged!
