I am rambling on about aging this morning,
If you’re not old enough, it may be a warning.
As I am going through life and getting older,
My mind seems to be getting a little bolder.
When I was young, I didn’t say what I wanted to.
But nowadays something is changing because I do.
Before getting old, I often did not say what I meant.
Now, I do if I am talking to a hobo or the president.
I was always trying to be something that I was not.
But not any more or maybe it’s something I forgot.
Now, I tell it like I see it, and sometimes I’m wrong.
Maybe this is what happens after we live this long.
Some of you may not know what I am talking about.
But when you are old enough, you will figure it out.
