Growing Older

Growing Older
Dr. James E. Martin
©November, 2013

The older I grow
The slower I go.
The more I study
The less I know!

They say this is the norm
As to “maturity” you conform.
So if this statement is not true,
Someone please inform!

I suppose I should now refrain
From continuing to complain.
It accomplishes no pleasant end,
There’s nothing therein to gain!

    Yes... but it would be better to be growing younger... Terry
