I'Ve Earned It. Trust Me

As I age I find my concerns heightened.
I find opinions from my lips slip.
To the dismay of others,
That leaves them frightened.

But aging affords me a caring less,
About political correctness.
And how that should be addressed.

Biting my lips?
Forget it.

And I guess this has a lot to do,
With experiencing life!
And what that proves.

I have paid my dues!
And have recovered with renewed attitude.
And it just so happens,
I have aged too!
With the benefit to say what I damn well please!

I've earned it.
Trust me!
