I fought old age

I fought old age with anger
I fought old age with fear
I fought old age with denial
But still old age is here

I fought old age with pills
With decoctions and with wine
I fought old age with prayers and anger
But still old age is mine

The body is slowly wearing 
The mind it slips at times
The heart is slowly fading
But for now I am just fine
For everyday I am thankful
for a life that is full and bright
I enjoy each day of living
And no longer need to fight.
