Really

I had waited long

To earn my place

In the ranks

Of the wise

Was always told

All failings of the body

Are signs of gold

Having arrived

The missing teeth

Restraint

The sagging skin

Humility

The falling hair

Detachment

The heartburn

Minimalism

The creaky joints

Pause

The failing hearing

Silence

But a grey eyelash?

Really?!

Always wondering....
