What do you do when you feel real young,
but you are actually old in years?
How do you reconcile your body and mind,
to get rid of your old age fears?
It wasn’t all that long ago,
When I was just a child.
Life looks the same to me today,
just as fun and free and wild.
I can’t run as fast, nor stretch as far,
But my spirit is lithe and free.
Despite evidence to the contrary,
That young girl is still actually ME!
