An Aging Done With Maturity
Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar
An aging done with maturity,
Allows some to become objective.
With a forgiving of those who had demeaned.
For whatever the reason may be,
People choose to select others...
With a choice to make them their enemies.
So foolish is this process.
And when one ages a patience seems to arrive,
With a sharing of recipes...
Some announce they would like to try.
And the openness by which sex is expressed...
On all levels of intimacy,
Are quickly discussed without embarrassment...
As if in the doing of it is an achievement,
Those who age want everyone to believe!
'My grandparents use to talk to me about sex,
More than my own parents did!
And where they were when wars were fought!
What's up with that? '
