I'm an open book here, and I have a lot to say, so I'll just say it.

Growing Old is Worth Fighting For

Aging is collective,
we grow all those inches,
                        stop,
then realize that we'll be no taller.

We collect the years
from birth to death.

Some have less than others
 and many never have a chance
 to collect even one.

Living life is a privilege
that can be taken away
 at any moment.

That last breath you take in life
is just as important as your first,
and it's something worth fighting for.
