Heaven Bent

Society that reveres age
Involves and respects,
Revives self-worth,
Helps to forget:
Loneliness is crippling,
Confidence-limiting.

Old age should rave,
Enjoy the fading light.
Grow old disgracefully
Fight the good fight –
New beginnings,
Fully living.

Age is opportunity,
Time hijacked,
Time for self,
Dignity intact,
Time slows:
Halos.
