Who likes their birthdays? I'll tell you who -
Anyone under the age twenty-two
Up until then they're all pretty fun
Especially the birthday for year twenty-one!
Soon after that they make you feel old
Reminding you "aging" now has it's hold
First it is subtle but doesn't take long
Before you know it - your youth is far gone!
Oh, what I'd give to be young again
The wisdom from now - the body from then
Yet despite my complaints these days are a must
'Cause I'd rather get old than be ashes and dust!


  1. Hahaha! My sis is acting all glum because her hubby (31) didn't plan a big shindig for her 23rd this year. I had to laugh, I'm the same age as her hubby and I can relate!

    I called my book reviews for adults the "twenty something" category but quickly realized, I need to change it to "thirty something" Sigh!
