“Aging” Poem of the Day (2023)


By Ashley O’Hare

Why are we terrified

of growing old?

Are wrinkles not reminders

of a life well lived?

Are birthdays not reminders

of an entire year passing?

Aging is a blessing,

not a curse to be cured.

It is human nature

to grow up.

We are supposed to

live and learn.

Acting half your age

only succeeds

in masking your wisdom.

Embrace your journey.

Trust the process.
