    I don’t walk the same walk
    I walked before

    There’s a limp in my step
    And I’m slow with my stroll
    My arms don’t dangle
    Like they used to do
    My chest is deflated
    And my shoulders are low

    I don’t walk the same walk
    I walked before

    There’s no bounce in my step
    Coz my feet are sore
    My sure-footedness is waning
    So I take it a little slow
    I don’t mind a dance step
    Or a moment or two

    I don’t walk the same walk
    I walked before

    My steps are shorter
    And my movements are slow
    Mr. Johnson don’t swing
    To the left…as he did
    Just hanging anywhere
    As long as he’s hid

    I don’t walk the same walk
    That I walked before.

    I don't walk da same
    as i bend to da floor
    i walk wit a hook
    just take a look
    i don't walk da same
    anymore
    body now new
    no more speedy taps
    now i walk maybe a lap
    just ain't da same
    but no need to be shame
    many can't even claim
    da same walk
    not even talk
    glad to be old !

    Nope...I ain't admittin it..
    I ain't old.......I'm 44 years young..
    I may get an occasionally cramp..
    but thats coz I haven't drank my milk regularly..
    I may have a few gray strands..but its a small
    price to pay for wisdom
    nope I ain't old....I'm seasoned.

    Baller...just some humor, there are a lot
    of people I know my age...gone...
    there are a lot of young people I know...gone
    to appreciate life everyday no matter what
    the age is truly living...thanx 4 sharing...

    Epiphany :heart:
