I Don't Fear Aging - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins



I don't fear aging

There is no aging within

Only refining

©  2019   M.N. Hopkins

Note:   I wrote this poem today after reflecting upon the years and my body aging yet within I feel just as alert and ageless as always and certainly much wiser.   I wrote it in the haiku style of poetry and published it for the first time on my blog today,  the 11th of March 2019.

you've shred. Much love and respect to you old friend and again
thanks for your sharing. My very best.

I agree!
Even if I ptobably still is what is considered to be young (soon 33) I can relate to it in that way that even if so many still wanna be young, I think noone included myself would like to turn back time and be the same one was as a youngster! I think becoming older is the privilege of gaining life experience, become wiser but to stay young in mind is always an option.

Best regards
Magnus
