I am old but (Be inspired today 390 by Ngobesing Suh Romanus)

So what if I am old?
It doesn’t mean
I am dead;
I am old, for sure;
But still waxing;
And fully determined
To live my life;
Don’t tell me I am old
And should give up life;
Am I dead?
Many things I can do;
And do them well;
That is how I will enjoy
My life;
I will not do
What I cannot do;
I will do what I can do;
Where I can excel,
I will go;
Where I will not excel,
I will not go.
So you stop saying,
“He is old.”
“He is finished.”
“It’s over for him.”
Lies!
Its not over yet;
I am not finished;
It’s not finished.
There’s still a lot to do.
