Mellowing

Middle age is but a tease,
Of the life that is to follow,
Running around with ease,
Is not for long, in the morrow.

The joys that are generated,
By the ecstasy of youth.
Now become highly overrated,
And ‘sour grapes’ follow suit.

The meager days that remain,
Prior to the days of grays!
It is now time to entertain,
The adage of aging with grace!

  6. Well if middle age is just a tease, bring it on. Actually, retirement always sounds good after a long day of work. Great attitude here.
