America

A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto


America

 

 

if old is just a state of mind

let me state my mind

 

i must live in the 51st state

senility's highway ends there.

I Likes it. I refuse to be "old," so call me "experienced." Yeah, that one should work.

You are not there yet, monsieur Jacob! You can always take the scenic route or the detour. Wonderful thoughts in the brevity of this piece. Much appreciated! :))

We all end up on that bus sooner or later if granted the "gift" of older age. I'll see you there one day :)

Could be a mental state...if so, then I am a fellow resident.

But then, "they've all come to look for America."

All we can do now is keep punching above our weight...

You are master of your own destiny. Maybe you have stayed too long in the same state? :)) Two solutions, change your outlook on life and imagine yourself young again or move to a state where all the youngsters hang out:) Fun write and play on words.
