Old Age

Poet: Julie Hebert, 2012

One day you'll wake up,
And feel an awful ache.
It's then you'll realize you're candles,
Won't fit upon your cake.

It's an inevitable thing,
That we all will get old.
It's how we look at it,
That will tell how life unfolds.

Do you see it as good,
From this point on life will be great?
Or do you see it as bad,
That soon you will be dead.

If every time you cringe,
When a birthday rolls around,
You might as well sit back,
And watch your life meltdown.

You have to think of aging,
As something more than that.
With aging comes great wisdom,
And that should be looked at!

Aging mean's you've lived,
And birthdays mean one more.
Have a happy birthday,
As there is still so much to explore.
