Aging

You're a baby when you're born,
for nine long months you hid.
Two, it seems, the magic age
when you become a kid.

Teen's threshold arrives at twelve,
young adult is at eighteen;
middle age is thirty-five;
enjoy what's in between.

When fifty looms before you,
you'll find yourself less bold.
When you hit that sixty-five,
then you're getting old.
