age is just a number

feeling like a burden
a burden to myself
things not going as well as I'd like them to
to the point it feels
like things are working against me
not a great way for someone to be feeling
a day before their 48th birthday
watched the seniors today in downtown White Rock
struggling to get around
but they had to get those errands done
the reality of getting older
not looking like much fun
but as I watched I was reminded
I'm still healthy enough
and perhaps even young enough
to transport myself all the way home by foot
though I didn't, know I still can
still a vibrant man with time on his side
want to believe that
but for the moment
feel like everything is moving
a little too fast for me
and then suddenly you get to a certain age
where it feels like everything
is taking an eternity
I'd like us to rediscover
the art of living while we still can
because in my burdened state
too little spontaneity
just brings me down
makes me feel old
though I know age is just a number
48 is feeling
at least for the time being
like far too many candles for the cake
