What is gracefully growing old?
Does this means fitting the mold
Standing aside to watch others play
Or killing my voice to end my say
Is it dressing gaudy or glam
Or is it doing as less as I can?
Sitting by the window and stare
Refusing to come out and share
Does it mean acting my age
shunning the center stage.
Joining a good book congregration
For prayer and salvation.
Shall I pen my will,
lay down and keep still?
