I'm 50 Today
I looked in the mirror to see some signs,
Like Dark spots or some tiny lines.
"You don't have any wrinkles" my friends say
but how long will it stay that way?
Wow, they exclaim, the big 5-0,
I don't feel any different though
Then when I turned 40 or 30 or 20
Except now I have kids and a lot more money
What if I am a young person in mind and heart
trapped in the body of some old fart
I mean what if my mind and heart stay so young
and I am too old to move or get anything done
Will I still be nutty and funny, in one place
when age spots and wrinkles DO cover my face
And will I even laugh at my incontinence too
and say to my kids HA! I peed on YOU!!
I get kids who check me out
and I yell "I Could be your mom"
I mean whats that about?
My son even gets upset and he'll shout
Hey don't you remember we used to hang out?
This is my mom, you met her before
When you came to the house and she answered the door
He sits back in a huff cursing under his breath
still I think Its kinda fun that I'm an M-I-L-F....
But as I look in the mirror I realize
that someday my eyelids will droop over my eyes
and I'll have those lovely laugh lines surrounding my mouth
and everything else below my neck will go south....
But today people think I look young and I feel great
So, whats the big deal if I tell them I just turned 38?
