What Direction Are We Heading

Updated on July 8, 2015

We are in Trouble

Planning for the future

Dreaming of what might be

How will we change in the next 10, 15, 25 years

It is so scary

Most people want to give it little thoiught

How will our bodies change ?

When we were young

We couldn't wait to get older

Only good things in our sights

Getting taller, smarter, stronger

Even richer we could only hope

Where in life do we all start to decline

A little weight gain

Our body not as limber as it use to be

Our eyes not as sharp and keen

Pulling out our glasses because we can't see

Forgetting to do something

Even though it was on our mind a second ago

Feeling more tired from work than usual

Slightly agitated and annoyed by ignorant and selfish people

Before I would count my blessings I'm not like them

Turn away and dismiss it from my mind completely

Upset when coworkers don't care about their job

You know your getting old when you turn on the radio to listen to music

People ask why ?

When people look at you funny when you pull out a camera

Your body aches for no apparent reason

Just because it feels like it

Going to the bathroom more often

Where before you gave it no thought

Words that we use to speak often

Are on the tip of our tongue

They stay their until someone pry's them off

Names of people and events we remembered are a bit foggy

I expected alot in my future but not this

It is what it is

Unless we find a way to make it better

      Precisely," it is what it is" . Planing ahead what "I" am expecting, not what to expect only, those 10, 15, 25 years are behind me not once, not twice, not... Nothing becomes "scary" when my spiritual eternity has been established. Life has it four seasons every year... We live, hope and believe ... expecting the best, accepting the rest...

      Very interesting.
