What's Wrong With Old?
You really seem young I've often been told,
As if nothing were worse than being old.
I smile and I thank then, but I want to say,
So , what's wrong with being old today?
Old means I've been here awhile..
Old means I've walked more than a mile.
Old means I'm still in the race.
Old means I've kept up with the pace.
Old means I still survive. ,living and laughing.
I'm still alive.
Old means when the going gets rough
They'll find me still standing because I am quite tough.
Old means I've been around,
Know how to keep my feet on the ground.
Old means thaI I've learned to accept
Sad losses over which I've wept.
Old means I've released control
And am more concerned with affairs of the soul.
Old means I now realize how hard it is to really be wise.
But most of all old knows
What the young don't know-
That where I am they too will go.!
