Thoughts on Growing Old

Have you ever thought about life when you grow old and weak?

When your skin will start to wrinkle and creases start to fold

And when you want to reach your toes, you can only bend your elbows

No more luster on your hair

Gone is the color of your fingernails

You wish you had more years to savor beauty

And look into the mirror to admire your youth and ignorance

And when you want to be hugged or to be kissed

They start to scream and say “Old man with the ladder, you smell like toilet cleaner!”

Would you still want live and be ninety?
