Now that you’re older and no longer sure what to do
Take a step back and look around , at all the beauties that you’ve found
Everyone had their own time era s that they recall
But they should know that you can’t have it all.
Do you recall when you was in your prime
And you felt you had a lot of time.
Well ! Your time didn’t last and now it’s become part of your past.
The beauties of youth , the beauties of life , even the beauties of sacrifice
When in your youth there was not a trace or wrinkle on your face.
Now more health problems start to come in
It’s a battle that you just can’t win
Weight gains, aches and pains , nothing ever stays the same
Age like everything has its pros and cons
And we have to see which outweighs the other.
Being at your age , you don’t have to work another
Fifty years to retire- and the retirement age is becoming much higher.
Yes ! You know you’re old when :
My words become true and you see what I’m going through.
Ha-ha welcome to my world !
