Our Sixties

Our Sixties are

the time of

self-acceptance

when our faces

shift from middle

age to the planes

and lines of our

elder path

Except for those

bicycle enthusiasts

our bodies sag

with the weight

of a life lived hard

We know ourselves

and do not hold

our heads in shame

This is the time

of release from

obsessive worries –

a time when we

set ourselves free
