Journeys Around The Sun

I never wanted the wrinkles  
But they are creasing  
I never wanted the gray hair
But like weeds in the grass
They grow like wildfire  
Aches and pains
And I get no younger
But as I take my fifty third journey
Around the sun
I unequivocally resolve  
Though the beauty of my youth  
Extends further and further away
The fire within burns brighter  
With each new day
Fifty three is not the new twenty three
Fifty three is not the new thirty three
Fifty three is fucking fifty three
Fifty three is where I should be
Until my next journey around the sun
