Aging Man This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Old man walking down the street,

Stooping his head, and dragging his feet.

Old man tripping on his cane,

Slushing through a puddle from a recent rain.

Old man with a long white beard,

His sullen face is never cheered.



Young man striding down the street,

His appearance is clean and very neat.

Young man stepping over the water,

Firmly placing his feet, without even a totter.

The men seem different, one healthy, one lame,

But in reality, they are one and the same.
