What’s wrong with being middle aged


What’s wrong with being middle aged?

Who decided when that was anyway?

If I live to be 130 then I not even half way .

Who decided I couldn’t be middle aged?

When time is wasted on the young,

who just have words stuck on their tongue,

with no wisdom that is most hard won.

That’s stuff you learn when you are done

caring about fashion or what you weigh,

but tell anyone and they will laugh at what you say.

Seems our world is geared this way,

to hate the self you are in today

and look back in regret because you bought what “they” say.

I think I’ll stay in the middle way.

 

What’s that skin you’re in


We live in a body and confuse ourselves with it.

The body is a body when nothing is in it.

Its made of clay or at least that’s what they say,

but the essence inside it most certainly isn’t.

We forget what we’re made of,

not a singular thing.

Our body is a skin suit we wear like our bling.

The soul that occupies this body we live in,

is immortal and loving though we often forget it.

Be nice to your body we can’t yet change sleeves,

but cooperate with it and then do as you please.

This body has a once in a lifetime use,

so use it well there is no excuse.
