Noticeable Shifts

I am not living my life to prove,
Those yesterdays I've been blessed to live...
I can repeat each one to do.
With a doing done to refuse to admit,
My body and mind...
Have not made noticeable shifts.

From one stage to another,
I've witnessed to accept and not resist...
Changes to value and benefits to get,
As an unfolding of a growth process...
Developed more interest,
In my living to experience all I could get.

Lessons to master and tasks to pass,
Did not come easy with them coming so fast.
With not a moment to regret,
The steps I have had to make to move forward.
Although left to leave some folks behind,
Dancing to the same unchanged rhythms.
Done with minds to find those times long gone.

I am not living my life to prove,
Those yesterdays I've been blessed to live...
I can repeat each one to do.
With a doing done to refuse to admit,
My body and mind...
Have not made noticeable shifts.
They have.
And I am glad not to look back with wishes,
I have heard from some to express...
They had addressed their aging with less,
Attempts made to stay forever unchanged.
