The Aging Process

Our bodies grow old

while inside we remain young.

Our minds can’t understand

what it is that’s gone wrong.

No longer able to climb the stairs

without losing our breath

every day passed

is another closer to death.

Our time is spent thinking

about things we wish to forget,

who would have thought

we could have so much regret.

Frustrated at how

weak we have become

and saddened by

the knowledge it can’t be undone.
