By Norman Molesko

I write about aging reality,

my reality and the realities

of those I meet and know.

For me it is human to share,

whether walking or in a wheelchair.


Various seniors and oldies

feel similar in many ways,

jaw boning at a market place,

complaining in a doctor’s office,

letting hair down over the phone.


They relate twinges and pains,

illnesses and other things to blame.

They listen to each other’s headaches,

read obituaries and go to funerals.

They are living through plenty at this time.


Yet my mind is often on a brighter plane.

I am surprised by new experiences,

what they do for me and lead to.

I am here. I am encountering life.

I write about aging reality.
