One of My AllPoetry Poems

Forty Body Talk

My mind does not feel forty.

My skin has a healthy glow.
My eyes are happy and kind.
But my hair has begun to thin,
My front has begun to sag.
My middle has a spare tire, which cries out, LIAR!

The junk in my trunk has sunk.

My back is on the attack.
My hips and knees beg me, PLEASE!
My feet and toes try to take up the slack.
But my life is full of laughter.
My heart is full of love, now and ever after.

My mind does not feel forty!

Author Notes

I recently hit this milestone birthday. And was in a bit of a sour mood the other day. When this came to me.

Most of my poems are Acrostics, but I do have a few others like this one too.

A Blog from My Past, JoeUser.

Here at WordPress they give you an automatic account with Gravatar. I added my Allpoetry to the websites for that profile right away. Then I remembered I also have a JoeUser account so I added that to my Gravatar profile. I have not used JoeUser in years. I have also had Yahoo 360, Myspace, and one other one but can’t remember what it was called. The JoeUser is the only one I  kept from that time period. It is from my time as a hotel housekeeper. I went back and read my post there today. It made me smile with fondness.

So if you would like to read about some of my life as a housekeeper pop on over.
