What Is Your Age?

Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2012

When you're old and grey,
And life seems to be getting away,
Hold on to your life preserver,
And grab on to that sleigh.

It's time to make a change,
A change that will reflect,
The way you feel inside,
Which seems has been neglect.

We all know how we feel,
And the age we feel inside,
Is not the age we're given,
By the rules that lead our lives.

So never act your age,
Act the age you feel inside.
Live your life as you see fit,
Then you can stand with pride.
Our wish is to start a new movement
For birthdays the number is not important
Live your life and forget your age
Birthdays don't be discouraged, live life encouraged!

Age Is Beauty
Poet: Greta Zwaan, 1982

Does your age make you feel you're a burden to man?
Remember beloved, you're part of God's plan.
Though your body be feeble, your hearing impaired,
There's a great deal of work in this world to be shared.

And though you're not able to physically strain,
You are still able to share other's pain.
You can encourage and you can advise
The vast store of knowledge that now buried lies.

The lessons you've learned in your travels on earth,
To those who are younger can share of your worth.
Let the beauty of age and the wisdom of time
Be a joy to your heart, and then share it with mine.

How old would you be, if you didn't know how old you were?
