afraid of getting old ?


We are all getting old it doesn’t

Matter what you’ve been told

You go from your childhood to your teen years

But you’re young and you have no fears.

Now that the teen years have come and gone

And to your teen years, you’re trying hold on.

What will happen when you’ve gotten older?

And your thoughts have gotten colder, and

Your movements have slowed down

As you turn and look around.

When your hair may turn grey or it starts to thin

Then you realize that you can’t win.

Age is coming up mighty fast. As you kick

Yourself in the ass.

Your youth like the weather tends to change

And you are never the same.

You started off like a cool gentle breeze

So refreshing to feel, and with

Your spirit you could heal.

Now you’ve become like the torrential rains

That comes from the skies.

Your tears are the raindrops that sink into the ground

But without ever making a sound.

Because you get older does not mean

That your spirit on fire no longer burns

It has just become amber of light

Waiting to ignite.

Just blow on that amber and watch the flame start to rise

As it shoots up and touches the sky.

That flame is the same that you had in your youth

And when you feel it that’s the proof.
