We Aren't The Number Of Our Age: Having The Time Of Our Lives Despite Our Digits, Grey Hairs, Wrinkles, Etc.

Emee.chan doesn't look or act her age and she's fine with it.

Wise words, Walt.

Before I Post My Poem, Let Me Just Add...

Okay, so this prompt is something to think about. I'll start by saying my age. I'm 29 years old and still haven't done half the things someone might say I "should have" by now. Where does it say we should do this or that by this or that year of our life? Is there a law? Are we going to jail if we don't meet those standards set by...who exactly? I'm dying to know! My point is that you might be young or old in body, but it's the state of your spirit that matters. It's how you feel inside that matters, not what your papers say. So do your thing, enjoy your life as much as you're able to and be thankful you've made it this far.

Immortal Spirit In A Mortal Body

Age is just a number, written in our birth certificate.
Yet we're often defined by it, like nothing else
Exists that could describe who we are as a person.

Every age of your life carries something different with it,
Be it crazy 20's or calm 70's.
None are more or less important than the other.

And frankly, who even looks their age nowadays?
You can be baby-faced or wrinkled, grey-haired or nay
No matter what your ID says.

I've seen older people with a youthful spirit
With more energy and will to enrich their life
Than some average people at 25.

The number of candles on your birthday cake
Shouldn't mean your adventures have come to an end.
It should mean you still got so much more to experience.

Our inner child is still inside our soul,
Never growing up nor wanting to.
That child is like Peter Pan,
Believing it all to be a trap.

Whether Young...


Or Old...

You deserve it all.

You deserve it all.

My Own Quote, Since I Write Those As Well

Let your inner child free. No one will notice the difference anyway.
