To be Old

To be old,
Is to be young again.
Blessed with time to review what is,
Wisdom to reflect on developments with bliss.

To be old,
Is to have conquered the serious mountain.
Blessed with experience to discover you,
Collection of failures and successes to find what is true.

To be old,
Is to long for the innocence of curiosity.
Blessed with connection to your unique soul,
Recognition of joys and callings that make you feel whole.

To be old,
Is to enter a new chapter of discovery.
Blessed with the past to guide you today,
Agreement to know but not-know in your choice of ways.

To be old,
Is to be alive.
Blessed with more experience and opportunity,
Realization that spirit lasts for eternity.

There are many myths about old age that I don't agree with. I believe life will be exciting when I'm old and gray, and I will never stop growing when I reach the biological age because I intend to remain young until my time is up!
