Mind over matter….

My bones are tired,
muscles ache,
The mind is fresh,
eager for information.
We share the same birthday;
not able to celebrate together,
the body, unwilling to join in;
an overbearing mind left
dancing to its own tunes.

The mind has no limitations:
excepting its body.
The body has many limitations.
including the mind.
Neither prepared to give way.

There are many yesterdays
of working together:
in harmony,
how many tomorrows,
will be full of conflicts.
not willing to co-exist.

A fork in the road
choosing different paths;
a body unable
to keep in step
with the mind;
grieving for what
cannot be.

With age comes
a lifetime of wisdom:
use it. Work together,
accept each others
restrictions.
We entered this life as one,
live as one; leave as one.

    Very nicely put together Helen; a magical piece of writing.

  2. It is: it sums up our dilemma as we grow older. Our minds remain young. I love “Work together,
    accept each others
    restrictions.
    We entered this life as one,
    live as one; leave as one.”

    I should put that on my fridge to read every day.
