Aging, simply put,

Is dynamic change

Key word here is dynamic

Without it we would simply

Be dead


Death, simply put

Is the end of dynamics

No more motion

Completion perhaps


So, if you are aging

You are a success!

A witness

To a natural process


Death comes

Only to the ego

Ask a physicist

They will tell you


Never ceases

To exist


You will live on

In your actions

And your thoughts

Your memory lives

In all those

You have taught


Energy transforms

It travels to infinity

Carrying memory

For those

Yet to be born.

I really enjoyed this poem, Clare. Heart-warming and inspiring. I can now think of myself as a success. It is a first! 😂
