New Best friends-poem

by Samuel De Lemos

The nice thing about aging:
you’ve been through a lot, there’s very few things
you haven’t seen;
it’s hard to get rattled.
The hardships are:
you discover pain in areas that are completely
unfamiliar to you.
questions like–
How in tarnation
am I sore there?
Or
I don’t even use that muscle?
BenGay and ibuprofen become
your new best friends.
