56


56
A number between 1 and 100
and an age
4 years from 60

When I was younger, much younger
60 seemed so very, very old
yet here I am almost there
and feeling something

Not sure I look almost 60
not sure I feel almost 60
it is the number
the realization of 6 decades almost gone

Finding more lines on my face
grey hairs showing themselves
sagging, bagging, lagging
and menopause of course

Is 60 the new 40?
that’s just something people say
60 is 60
and I’m almost there

On the other hand
I’m very thankful for it
the alternative
is even less appealing
