Feeling 65 And Loving It
Author: Meridian Zuriel


Feeling 65 and Iím not even there
Not at an age yet
To receive gray hair
But Iíve always felt older
Than what I really am
I donít keep up with the latest slang
The latest style
The latest game
Iím still hanging with Mario
You know from Nintendo?
I feel I identify
With people much older than I

Most of them have gone through
What I have yet to undergo
But even so
Itís good to hang with an advice-giver
Someone you can trust
Who wonít steer you wrong
I feel like I belong
In this circle of sisters
They have the right spirit
The right attitude
People you can trust
Always speaking to you
Always friendly
Not about hate or envy

Itís not about the fashion industry
With me
Iíd rather dress differently
Could never fit in with a crowd
That didnít want to hang
With me
Iíve always been a puzzle
Apparently shaped amorphously
Had to work too hard
To gain the friendship of my peers
Now that Iím accepted
In a group of older sisters in Christ
It feels nice
And I can safely say
That I donít have to think twice
About whether or not
Their sanctity is a facade
ĎCause itís evident
That theyíre all about God

------- Author's Notes -------

Couldn't think of another title other than this one. Oh well.
I feel a different age occasionally, depending on the situation, topic and circumstance.
