Age, Old?

Growing old loses sanity, brings to life real time Permanent scars soon appear, days are long and dreary A gift to some, age brings forth wisdom Curse to those who fear demise Each one alive will reach this time Enjoy the benefits Respect is granted to the older one, years of life show favor Younger ones will seek advice, a true American idol Why question fate enjoy the attention It is earned through years of experience Some day will come you mark my word Shoes will be empty Some curse the day age will come, why? It makes no difference Mirrors never tell a lie, Vanity becomes the hated Why dread the day you show your age Friends will all still love you Think of the owl, this wise old soul Enjoy for God has blessed you
