Like Any Animal, I Am Aging


Thirty-two years ago today I was bald,

I’m now tall and have gray hair.

Like any animal, I am aging.


I’m back in the city of my birth,

Running around buildings of large girth,

Unlike the trees that I find pleasing.


I visit with friends and family,

And share my adventures from here and there,

Places that some were unaware.


I have been sitting and working and waiting,

For a man with a beard and long hair,

To whisk me away to adventurous play,

For my soul is waiting in the wild somewhere.
