Updated on February 1, 2017

Do you feel scary of GETTING OLDER

The Preamble

As in "Youth and Age" by W.B Yeats

Much did I rage when young,
Being by the world oppressed,
But now with flattering tongue
It speeds the parting guest.

Perhaps nobody wants to grow older. An uncontrollable affair, a divine affair in fact, this poem has a silent message that the worldly power of a man is mortal and is just temporary spike.

ANONYMOUS AGING
ANONYMOUS AGING

I innocently want to SLOW DOWN the flame of aging:

Why we grow up in years,

and we transform from corn to hominy,

We had neat and innocent eyes

Soft hands and closed fists,

but transfigure into wrinkled cries !!




I innocently want to SLOW DOWN the flame of aging:

For most around us do not GROW UP,

They only AGE

Remember Life is too short to Hate

So quickly we all skate

Remember to have the correct path and slate!!


I innocently want to SLOW DOWN the flame of aging:

For its never better to be ordinary

It may be bitter to be orderly.

So stand up and get counted

before our years are counted !!


The Message

  • Don't suffer aging, embrace it.

    Nice poem and beautifully expressed!

    Aging is inevitable and we must accept it and age gracefully. We must thank God for each single day that we have lived.

    Thanks for sharing this excellent hub!

    What a positive attitude, optimistic approach you carry. Growing older is indeed inevitable and for everyone, better is to take it in a positive and lessonful way.

    Good counsel to embrace age. Why pick a fight you could never win? Growing older is itself a blessing.

    I could sense a continuity, a flow and a surreal streamline peace in your poetry Saqib. Go ON

    Thanks Jodah for enjoying my poetry.

    Aging is inevitable indeed. As long as one has no regrets, a satisfied soul has no effect to aging, it's the soul that matters I think.

    This poetry was different but enjoyable. I don't think anyone wants to age but it is inevitable and we need to try to embrace it and do it gracefully. As long as we keep experiencing new things and learning it is worthwhile.
