'old-age'. But as we all know, 65 is the new 45...right?
The Awesome Zone
Each birthday has been special,
but this one stands alone.
This birthday crosses into
what is called the ‘old age’ zone.
There is one thing that takes away
the sting of Medicare;
that minimizes aches and pains...
the pique of graying hair.
It is the love that I absorb
from family and good friends.
It fuels my soul and fills my heart…
each one of them’s a godsend.
So bring it on! I’m not deterred
from facing this milestone.
I'll celebrate each precious day,
as I embark the ‘awesome' zone.
My good friends all assembled
for a special birthday dinner.
We lined up for a photo op.
Oh god, I must look thinner!
I move to the middle and turn sideways,
then put my hand up on my hips.
I jut my chin to remove the double
and slightly purse my lips...
so as to downplay my deep laugh lines.
I'm getting in a bad mood.
Let's get this over with...I am so stiff
and ready for my food!
