More on aging graciously~
- 5 Dozen Candles
Hawaiian Odysseus recently turned sixty. One of the things he did was to ride a roller coaster for the first time in his life. The jury is out as to whether or not it knocked some wisdom into his head. Read this heartwarming Hub, and then you decide.
Time is a concept. Aging is a mindset.
On my 18th birthday, I was given a party
To celebrate a new beginning
It signals adulthood and that child’s play is over
A reminder was given to be wise and smart
For any decision I make will affect my future.
Now, it’s a whole new world to explore and conquer
The waves of enthusiasm continuously flow
But, adulthood came without any instructions
I have to deal with it graciously, learn as I go
So, the world could be proud and I can shout.
I’ve made it to the top with love intact my heart
I’ve fallen and failed, laughed and cried
Yet, I graciously pick up myself over again
Cheerfully welcomed the challenges of life
Reciprocating bitterness with a sweet smile of revenge.
I’ve grown beyond my own meager years
I cannot maintain this human form
Aging is like an illusion, how fleeting is a lifetime!
Look one more time on my radiant face
Before the dusk sets in and I fade away.
My aging body may become weak and frail
But my wandering soul will be at peace not weep
For I’ve humbly and respectfully aged graciously
So, when the wind chime and the earth comes calling
I’ll look up to the sky, quietly close my eyes and gracefully exit.
Do you believe in aging graciously?
