I once went to a psychic medium, who said I was like a tortoise:
Very slow, but certainly sure.
And so it has proven, for my life thus far has taken its time and its toll.
Yet, as my body grows weary, and the aches and pains set my pace,
I perceive in my spirit, a sprightlier gait then many
Who have already grown tired of life’s rewards- that are new to me.
