When your body parts start to wear out

Updated on September 6, 2010

What do I do ?

There comes a time in your life that things don't work the same

You get up one morning and your bones creek

Later that day you go to lift something and you hear a pop

That wasn't popcorn in the popper either

It was one sign of many your body is aging

You can turn up the radio and pretend you didn't hear it

But if you don't make the radio louder you won't hear  it

Then there is more

When your feet hit the floor and they send aching signals to the brain

Your body may be quiet niave and say something like who me ?

I was fine yesterday what could of happened ?

I don't get it ?

What do you mean my knee is kind of swollen

You limp your way to the computer for some added rest

Was it that long ago that you use to run the beach

Two centuries came and disappeared before you needed glasses

Your upset stomach is telling you that you had something it didn't agree

Is it the green peppers that I always use to eat ?

Why can't I stop burping ?

A little intergestion nothing to worry about

When you see a higher forehead than before

Where did my hair go ?

When you get your first back ache

I must of slept wrong

When you get up to go pee in the midddle of a sleep since you couldn't wait till morning

When touching your toes becomes an all day project

I know I can, I know I can,  oh skip it I got half way isn't that enough

When the muscles in your neck tighten up for no reason

Ouch that hurts

You wimper loud enough to be heard but not loud enough for anyone to care

When you go to church and kneeling down is a thought out process

I can grab hold of back of the bench hear and bend

Then getting up I will do it slowly

Why do we have to do it again

Wasn't once enough

When we start to fall asleep when someone is talking

When you start to take alieve and asprin hours before

Just incase to cover your tracks

So that you don't add any pain to the list

Each time I say it is all in my mind and please go away

My body knows different and says it is time to prepare

When you put your primary care physician on speed dial

Old age is catching up to you

The next time we meet you will have a new list of health aches

But for now nothing to serious

A little extra rest and some good luck

Can keep you out of the doctors way

For one more day

      Unfortunately my body is showing signs of the ageing process so I appreciated this one although I don't appreciate getting old!

      I found you while reading comments on a hub. I was so impressed with your honesty and humility that I wanted to follow you. So here I am and very glad I made the right decision. I am at the age where I discover a new "noise" coming from my body almost everyday. I bless it, thank it, stretch it and feed it nutritious foods in the hope that I will be here for a long time to come because I do so love my life. Thank you...

      HaHa I'm so happy (so happy) that I'm nineteen for life.

      even though I slept bad last night so now everything aches. I'm sill happy I'm nineteen (for life) Hope those old bones of yours remember they were once young and start acting like that again. So you too can be nineteen for
