coming to terms with self

Truth is rarely pure and never simple~
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.” ~Oscar Wilde~

finally
waged war with self
lost, won, got self into
socks and sneakers
to rock and roll,
tai-chi, chair yoga
do dance-exercise
and belly dance

acknowledging
own aging was
rather liberating
pennies tinkled and
reassuringly dropped
as I happily joined lively
golden oldies at our local
center for the aging
~
learned a thing
or two, you are old
only in the head
if thinking is lively
you can regain
a neglected, food
abused body, enjoy
your day in the sun
~
tweaking head firmly
I’ve made my peace
with self and soon
enough I’ll have my
Medicare card and
discounted Metro card
and avail of many other
senior discounts
~
To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.”~ Oscar Wilde
