"Aren't you afraid
Of the cold
And walking alone?
Of getting old
And never having grown?"

"Sometimes I am
More than afraid
Even
But standing still
Terrifies me more."

Yes, I hear you on this, Laura. Growing old is not for the faint of heart...but it IS better than not GROWING at all!

Great seeing you in Poetry Pantry.
