Snap, Crackle & Pop
When the ages noises of the body just won't stop
Although, her skin was tanned and lean
Her body no longer felt like a flexible, youthful machine
So many aches, bruises, and other annoying growing-old cons
Things that make you question at what point it all started going wrong
As far back as I can remember, my right knee would constantly stick while I was in slumber land
Counting back from ten, out loud inside my mind, I would jump up and force myself to stand...
A private little hell I wasn't sure how to share
I could perfectly walk, most times, so no one would really even care
Was this my first red flag my joints would begin retiring at a much younger age
If so, I should have paid more attention to my insides as much as I did wanting to physically look like a model on "that" front page
You get my drift, and why I am not too terribly shocked by the lack of movements and sounds of my bones
Just know one thing... you will continually see me walking, as long and willing, as I am still able to comfortably roam
