If I Live Until Fifty

If I’m lucky enough to live until fifty,
I hope I’m not a soulless body.
I won’t be a soulless body.

I know some abilities will falter
But fifty is not that factor.
Ambition is what it matters.

I want to see myself at fifty
As someone who grows old gracefully,
Keeps smiling and being healthy.

I hope my dreams are fierce and strong.
I hope I help places where I belong,
Have beloved people to share good times and life songs.

Let’s live life to the fullest, be happy,
Face the world with kindness and sympathy,
If I’m lucky enough to live until fifty.

  1. This is a lovely poem. “I hope my dreams are fierce and strong” – I especially loved this line. Age is just a number when a young spirit inhabits your body. I hope I’m lucky enough to reach fifty too.
