yes, I'm getting older

and I don't buy that it's all in my head,
bad attitude.
my bones creak, my legs are stiff,
I'm tired.
you, who are so young, deny reality,
the older athletes you see out there rest
between workouts,
and probably take long naps.
they encourage me to try handstands
and back bends, but I've never done
them and it's unlikely that my
body would agree to them
Yes, I'm getting older and
I need to keep this
body happy.
Let's not overdo it.
