'S' is for Secure. Here I state that one should secure one's old age in advance to avoid frustrations and disappointments.
Hold the rails firmly.
Enter testing spaces determinedly.
Guard the flimsy freedom mightily.
Ensure the mellowed voice to be heard surely.
Outside home, it is chaos, rush and rages,
Lurking fear of being knocked down dazes.
A misstep, and there you go sprawling down,
Into the hell of broken bones, to piteously drown
Sulking liver keeps at bay our favorite treats.
Morbidity robs life force of buoyant mobility.
Gone are the days of fun, frolic and agility.
Medicine cabinet turns into overflowing mess.
Clutter of files throttles the drawer’s chest.
Restricted choices make up the daily bane.
Life’s journey becomes a mirthless game.
Let’s console ourselves though:
Brooding and fretting won’t pay.
Regular workouts may yet save the day.
Together with some ennobling task,
Wait peaceably for the ultimate blast.
Friends, welcome here as always!
