The Daily Prompt – Fifty!

I hope that when I finally get there

To celebrate half a century of my sojourn on earth

I would have reached the pinnacle of my career

And achieved most of my lofty dreams

For forward ever so I’d keep going

When I arrive at the fifth decade

Of my existence

Though still a long way from now

It will be celebration time

For it will mark a new chapter in my life

With a wealth of experience to share

A new look of fine aging lines

With patches of grey hair

But I know 50 will be the new 30

As I pray to age gracefully


In response to the Daily Prompt – Fifty.

Peace and Love!

    • Wow! This is so true. It’s an advantage to be alive yet ‘old’ or ‘growing older’. As nothing matters anymore if we’d be pushing up daisies. Yeah! You spelt it correctly. Thank you, Scott. Enjoy a great day. 🙂

    • With life intact, it’s achievable once I remain focused and optimistic. Ideally at 50 which is the youth of old age… at 65, should be smiling at life still feeling young at heart. Lol. 🙂


    • Many thanks and same wishes for you too. Growing old is a blessing and when we pray for longevity that’s exactly what we hope for – to age gracefully. Hope you are doing great Bella. I appreciate you. Hugs. 🙂
