Aging Gracefully . . . or just Aging


I woke and looked in the mirror;
I felt a certain dread;
my hair, once brown and silky,
now looked like so much gray thread.

My legs, once long and sleek,
now have knees that continually creak.

I noticed a number of sad things
about my aging body;
but then I smiled and said,
"Now I'll have no cause to be haughty."
