Reflection on Aging

Aging is a process

that takes fortitude

to meet the days ahead

trying to do those little things

that once were so much easier.

The advertisements promise

to give one renewed vigor

just this one little pill

and soon you’ll be better than ever

but unlike Alice

this is no Wonderland

and although the pill worked once

does not mean you will also.

To gray with grace

to love and dream still

is all one can hope

as time slowly grinds away

and we are once more dust

having left our imprint

on the shadowed walls 

of hearts that we loved
