Aging

Aging

Is inevitable,

Unpreventable,
Incorrigible,
& sometimes
Elusive.

Do we travel in
Circles?
Like I am told,
By mystic shamans
Like my Mom.

To me,
Time like a parking garage,
Each level an age or era,
Hard to explain.

Aging,
Traveling in our concept of time,
Is it really any different
Whether 18 or 98?

My external observations
Of elders
May be deceptive once we
Start talking,
My efforts sometimes concentrated 
On not judging.

Walk in my shoes
They may tell you
Young one,
Someday they'll be you,
Hold their hand
Until they are done.
