Walk, Walk, Walk

You are eighty, so what!

Challenges of age and time

Psyche and choices are sublime.

Whatever you propose

Natural forces tend to oppose

In all dimensions of our life

Continually, it needs to strive.

External obstacles,

Chaos within;

Keep up the spirit

Never to give in.
"Be youthful" is the inner dictate

No matter what says birth certificate.

Wearing down the physical reserves

Declining lung's elastic preserves

Osteoporosis of aging bones

Sarcopenia and receding tone

Failing balance down the tread

Altered DNA, mitochondria degrade.

Frailty! Combat with exercise, stretch

Yoga and meditation, relax

Prefer a walk instead of ride

Leave the lift, take a stride

Possible to sustain wisdom, cognition

Read, write, keep puzzling tradition

Keep brain's limbic system on toes

Prevents Alzheimer's, intellect grows.

Laughing with others, listening to music

Prayer for peace brings in a magic

Strengthen your soul, caring the others

Open up, empathize, love fellow brothers
