  1. 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!

  2. 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.

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

  4. State Of Mind
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Age is all a state of mind
    It is just a number it is not defined
    You can act and feel very old
    But if the truth be told
    You can be old and act very young
    There are many with a song still to be sung.

    Just because a number you hit
    Doesn't mean all you can do is knit
    There are many who achieve many things
    And live there life accepting what it brings
    Don't let your age stop you this day
    Achieve your goals and be on your way!

  5. How Old Are You
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    You won't say how old you are
    You say the years have passed in a blur
    We can't believe you would tell a lie
    Tell us your age, without blinking an eye.

    We can predict your age by actions
    Then the number would be half a fraction
    You live your life to the fullest each day
    So just tell us your age, if you may

    We know no matter what
    Age is not really important, but
    We just want to know
    If your age is what you show!
