I am getting older
I continue to learn and evolve
My hair has become thin and grey
Wrinkles and age spots grace my body
My spinal discs have shrunk and lost their elasticity
As a result I have become smaller as I age
I have 2 health conditions to manage
Managed by medication, exercise and monitoring
Still I am grateful
I am mobile, fully functioning if not a bit squeaky
Still I am grateful
Still I am appreciative
I am alive and independent
