Forever Young

After the change

call it accident

call it disability

or illness

we still haven’t got used to it

observe our image each day

surprised, dismayed


As if it all had never happened

and this was some terrible mistake

that somehow could be avoided

if we just go back to sleep

and wake up again to find


That all is back to normal

and in the full-length mirror

of ourselves

we see our reflection

lithe, strong and young

as we always knew we were

somewhere inside


Announcing to the world

we are the champions

now and forever

nothing can ever

take that truth away
