Trust Me On The Maturity Thing

The world sees age,

My spirit does not.

I am constantly surprised in life

When I realize I am older than others around me.

How did I get to be older than anyone?

I may have an old soul,

But it is completely wrapped up in childlike joy and demeanor,

And void of maturity.

    “We” did somehow grow older, and like you, I’m still waiting for my maturity to arrive, my dear Mum said to me on that 60th birthday, years ago, “Oh Ivor, you’ve never grown up”

  8. The group is getting bigger every day, I’ve joined 4 times already.

  9. Forever young, that’s my motto. My kids look at me like I have lost my mind. I so enjoy that.

  10. I caught a glimpse of myself in a window reflection the other day – so much older than I feel. I guess that’s okay because I’m still able to do everything I want to do. That’s the most important thing about getting older.
