Sixty Years Young

Updated on August 1, 2015
Source

I am sixty years young

And a thousand years old

I possess the Innocence of a child

And the Wisdom of the Gods

I am a woman

And a warrior

A pacifist

And a fighter

I've learnt to Love through Hate

Grow Strong through Weakness

And now I believe that my Life is a journey

Towards Heaven's gate

I've learnt Honesty through telling Lies

And I've discovered I Love to cry with laughter

Instead of shedding tears of Sorrow

And now, I don't worry about my tomorrows

I've learnt Faith through having Fear

And Trust through having Doubts

And now, I don't try to work out

How it will all workout

I own all those parts of me

That separated me from the Heart of me

They've made me whole

And they've made me strong

By finally bringing me to a place

Within myself where I feel that I belong

I am sixty years young

But my journey

Has only just begun!

      Knowing yourself , knowing who holds your future, you oiwn each new day - planing never ending future... What is sixty comparing to eternity, anyway... Twenty years ago I didn't know how fast each day flows while discovering wonders of each new opportunity. Live it Betty Janet Davis as your poem's spirit proclaims.

      Voted beautiful.
