I Am Not Old

I am not old, she said
I am rare

I am the standing ovation
at the end of the play

I am the retrospective
of my life
as art

I am the hours
connected like dots
into good sense

I am the fullness
of existing

you think I am waiting to die
but I am waiting to be found

I am a treasure
I am a map
these wrinkles are imprints
of my journey

ask me

  1. I really like the 97 year old yoga teacher. Ahe remibds me of the spunky Betty White! ♡ Now that I am 60, I really do think about things like meaning and value of Life. I enjoy being child-like! 🙂 Having grandchildren promotes and motivates my wishing to have good health and a longer life, Samantha.
