Living Life?

When we get older
We forget what
We take for granted
Like living.
Keeping calendars
Are now a part of life
Writing everything down
Less we forget.
Driving a vehicle
Been doing it for years
Now, judgement blurred
Should we give it up?
Independence, the biggest thing
No one wants to lose it
When people suggest it
We throw adult fits.
It is so difficult
Even for myself
To have to ponder
Are we still safe?
Assisted living
Nursing homes
Family homes
No way in hell.
Getting older is
Travel days
Or pure hell.
