Aging female songs




Songs of an aging female

Life plays many versions of these tunes

Whether we like them or not




Like an accordion

Our bodies are constantly changing

Often beyond our control

Life pushes our buttons



Pushes some more

Keeping us ever wondering

What version of the song comes next

Good nutrition

Faithful exercise

Prayer and meditation

Cannot always sway

The radical hormonal changes

Life keeps playing, and playing, and playing

I am like an accordion

Trying to play my own tune, see a smaller point on the scale

But my hormones have shifted (again)

Now they prefer to expand

I am soaked thru with sweat, frustration, and a primal cry

Life doesn’t listen, it simply hangs me out to dry

E.A. Fussell
