You look good for your age

I heard this at 43
running 6 days a week
in my sexual prime
You say I look good for my age.

Women with image issues
media victims
cultural slaves
But say what
I look good for my age?

I didn’t wanna it hear then
at  65 
with sagging skin
Tell me now
 I still look good for my age? 

keep your backhanded compliments
Just tell her she looks good
leave it there
or shut up

until my death

until my death

I've given you away four times
In the end,
always taking you back

I was not the special one,
your first born desire
Still, only I, carry you

Tucked beneath your mantle
Until my death,
bearing my daddy’s name

Thoughts for Today

"Your little will can't do anything. It takes Great Determination. Great Determination doesn't mean just you making an effort. It means the whole universe is behind you and with you--the birds, trees, sky, moon, and ten directions."
Katagiri Roshi

Don't be attached to the result rather be immersed in the process.
