This is a poem about women and aging. I am sure that some of you will say I am too young to know about this, but as someone, nearing age 30, whose arthritis is as bad as a 60 year old, thanks to the lingering affects of a fractured femur, years ago, I can assure you that there are days when my leg just won't go and I feel much older than I am!


 

Some think women age gracefully
But, I’m not sure it’s true
There are times, for the life of me
I’d swear I’m ninety-two
I start to walk; my legs will go
Then, suddenly, I’ll freeze
And, on those days, I feel as though
My life is one big tease.
 
I’ll take a break and start again
Until I pause once more
My hip will pop; my mind will spin
I’ll run into the door
I’ll cringe, trudging along each mile
I pass on life’s highway
Then, with a quite uncertain smile
I will forget the day.
 
Life may, indeed, be one big tease
But, teasing is just fine
My heart enjoys a sense of ease
From each age spot and line
Whether graceful, I cannot say
But, of this much, I’m sure
Content or not, I’d gladly pay
To locate aging’s cure.

Cute poem, Jill. I broke my ankle 20 some years ago and it still gives me fits when cold wind, or really any wind, hits it. It buckles and so do I...I understand that feeling old bit!

The cure: botox, face lifts, eye lifts, more botox, chin lift, But I thoroughly enjoyed the humor of aging. Liz

Jill, I know that we all can relate to this in some way be it a knee, leg or back. Yet for some reason when I read your delightful poem this verse came over and over in my mind…I don’t know why but it did. So I am putting it here for what ever reason it came to me.

“And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.” (II Corinthians 12:7).

Take care and have a Blessed day.

Perhaps the fountain of youth is optimism, for the only cure for old age I know is not very appealing.

Me too would like a cure. Could hardly takes steps as I got out of bed this morning. The humidity makes it even worse, and believe me it is going on 90 again today. Did not feel well in stomach at all yesterday with the heat and all. It makes me feel ill being so hot.

I am forty four and often feel older, due to fractures and broken bones from all the romping, wrestling, and adventures of youth! My knees are not what they used to be...and I'm not sure when the grey hair began to appear...I guess it could be worse! Loved the humor in this write and the picture was a hoot! Enjoyed!
Blessings,
