Ode to 50

NuMe NuMe
I don't care what the calendar says. I don't care what my birth certificate says. I don't care what my mother says

I AM NOT 50!!!!!

My face doesn't look 50.................... ..40-maybe
So what if I have a few wrinkles, I have plenty of creams.
So what if my skin isn't all peaches and cream any more. Thats what foundation and blush are for.
And maybe I have some grays but only my hairdresser knows for sure.

My body doesn't look 50.................... .35-maybe
So what if I don't weigh 100 lbs any more. Who wants to be that skinny anyway
So what if I have to wear a bra under everything. Only my hubby sees what's under my clothes.
And I absolutely refuse to dress like I'm 50! If I have it my way I will die in my jeans!

My body doesn't feel 50.................... ..30-maybe
So what if I have to work out to keep it that way. Exercise is good for everyone.
So what if I take more supplements than I used to. Those are good for you too.
And maybe I am feeling a bit warmer now and then. But once I get through it, there will be no more periods.

I don't feel 50.................... .................25-ma ybe
So what if I don't remember a few minor details. They just must not have been important.
So what if I tell you something more than once. This way you won't forget.
And there's just too much information in my brain already to hold it all. So something's gotta give.

I don't make love like I'm 50................20-m aybe
So what if I can't go for 4 hour marathons any more. Quality is better than quantity anyway.
So what if I'm sometimes slightly sore all over the next day. It was worth it.
And besides it's so much better once you know what you like, have fun and just enjoy it without inhibitions.

And in the place of all that youth, I have some wisdom, knowledge, insight and discernment.
I make less mistakes. I make better choices. And if you listen I give pretty good advice.
I know what the most important things are....God and family and good friends.
I've had half a lifetime of experiences and I hope I have half a lifetime more to go.

They say "You're as old as you feel"
They say that 50 is the new 30.
I can live with that.
But......Never say die.....or 50.

So that's my story and I'm stickin with it.

I'm turning 50 in a little over a month and this came to me last night. So I thought I would share it with you all.

Oh and it didn't copy and paste perfectly in a few spots.

But I hope you enjoy it.

I love it! It is so true!! Give me my jeans and tee shirt anyday!!
It's nice to be so knowledgable at our age and to think of what all we don't have to go through again!! I'd not trade my age for anything...not quiet 50 but closing in fast LOL
Thanks for starting this thread!!

It might seems mushy - but my favorite lines are: "I have some wisdom, knowledge, insight and discernment. I make less mistakes. I make better choices. And if you listen I give pretty good advice. "

Nicely done, newme21. It's always great to see people having fun with expression.

I could give you a list of at least ten 50+ women who are as sexy as anything. Some women are like fine wine, and just get better as they get older. I think confidence, experience and class are far sexier than any amount of taut teenage tush.

I'm not 50 yet, I have a few years to go, but I LOVE the poem.

I'm also a bit older than a lot of the posters here, so I can relate.

My Man is 50, though, and we can still do those 3 hour marathons.....if I can keep him awake. In fact, I'm hoping for one tonight.
