Today a growing reality confirmed itself

With me,

And it became clear to me I’m not as old

As I once was;

But the eerie thing that was the cold slap

In the face, 

Was the painful fact that I’m more than just

A little bit older:-


They say that with age comes so much more


But failed to underscore that with aging, comes

New physical pain;

And when you’ve never been this old age before,

It’s indeed new!

Your body refusing to do so much of which it once

Was able to:-


Suddenly you realize that 99% of your high school classmates

Have passed on,

And that God still has you here standing perpendicular

To the ground—

That He still has labors of love that remain here you

To yet repeat;

For those who will still be here doing the same when

You’ve gone on:-


Remembering the many crosses that God has resurrected

You from,

You get down on those painful aged bending knees and give

Him the glory:-

For you are just as those old naked sage trees seen still standing

In the cold winter;

And this new pain is just a spiritual reminder of your sojourn in 

The Shepard’s footsteps!


Being re-barked and re-greened by the Holy Spirit with healing

Strengthen faith,

I push up on these blessed bending and straighten-aged knees

God has given me;

And prepare to get back out there and continue to serve God by

Being in and of service to others—

Reflecting Jesus’s supreme love and being an ebon instrument of

The divine Trinity:-
