coming to terms with self

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

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

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
