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.

Poems About Life
The trouble is, when a number—your age—becomes your identity, you’ve given away your power to choose your future.
Richard J. Leider
Your age can be determined by your actions, your enthusiasm for life.
The belief that youth is the happiest time of life is founded on a fallacy. The happiest person is the person who thinks the most interesting thoughts and we grow happier as we grow older.
William Lyon Phelps
In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years.
I love living. I love that I’m alive to love my age. There are many people who went to bed just as I did yesterday evening and didn’t wake this morning. I love and feel very blessed that I did.
