Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday

written by: Anne G



What is age

but just a page

Groups of days

months and years

Stage by stage

increase the page

Infancy and childhood

adolescence to adult

When my gaze

confronts the mirror

Beyond the creases

and the folds

I see the person

that once was

Eyes still sparkle

 mouth still smiles

The heart is young

the body strong

A mind that yearns

a will that burns

Yes it is me

I am the same

Age is but

a changing number

It will never

put asunder

All the joy

that’s meant to be

Never surrender

and remember

A stage remains

the page is sage

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
