By Far the Best Goodnight

Getting old
No longer a player
The object of patronization
A “has been”
A soon “no longer will be”
Not to be taken seriously
A trap of dependency
A compilation of deepening hassles
A collection of physical complaints
Repulsive to the young
An affront to the middle-aged,
A used up story of little interest
Dreams and visions no longer relevant
Sitting on the sidelines
A player nevermore?
No way!!!
I reject getting old as out of hand
Positive potential I vow to keep
I will leave with a toss of the head
And a defiant measure of resistance
A healthy portion of attitude
Holding on to love as the life force
Filling with light the valley of shadows
By far the best goodnight.
