A lot of expectations as you grow older Some of them you see coming While most are jaw-dropping And without permission walk into you It is ironic the way people now see you Can you do it? Is now a thing of the past The words “no” is now very pesky So you can’t help but say yes When you are pushed against the wall You have nothing but the wall at your face So tall and sturdy, you just keep looking up But surprisingly you always get to the top

Well written Williams! I love the message - even if you're pushed, you get to the top: that's the kind of attitude we all need to develop. Nice!
