Youthful Steps

I aint trying to get down with the beat,
Or keep it funky for 'nobody'.
To boogey to impress,
I can address with sweat...
A few youthful steps,
With a shaking of my booty...
Is not a challenge.

What is?
And there is nothing complex about it.
But...
I've discovered that an acceptance,
Of the aging process harnesses for me...
A self respect I did not expect I would enjoy.

I know my comments annoy a lot of old folks.
But I aint trying to stay timeless,
With a hip and with it attitude.
Plus...
I am not living with a wish to have done things,
I did not or could not do.
I've made attempts and will continue.

Although I could,
If I so desired...
To get down and sweat with the best!

But,
I aint trying to get down with the beat,
Or keep it funky for 'nobody'.

To boogey to impress,
I can address with sweat...
Youthful steps,
With a shaking of my booty?
Is stressful.

And poppa don't want to prove,
I can be an aging fool.
Too many are doing that already.
