Aging Gracefully

Who are these experts on aging
you know, the ones who say
accept the changes – find new meaning
in the activities of the day.

What a contradiction,
the words escape my lips.
I want to go play tennis,
but damn these no good hips!

I desire to move about,
yet my bones scream
– Oh Hell No!
I want to hear my favorite song,
but the volume’s just too low.

I cannot see the words
written on the page,
I think that aging gracefully
means getting through the day.
