Aging Gracefully

By Bobbie Troy


I don’t understand

the concept

of aging gracefully


the term

must have been coined

by someone

on the right side of 50

who was not arthritic,

incontinent, riddled with cancer,

short of breath, overweight,


or just plain feelin’ crappy


where is the grace

in all of that?
