That With The Age

Age mellows one
being the conviction,
I find many aged ones
behaving odd.

Sayings are for the general
exceptions do arise, is the
defense, Not so, I deny
with strength.

Old, as you grow, turns
one senile, goes another,
Can be the case of a statesman.
Not so, I refute with force.

It is not the age that matters,
the mindset, the attitude
create the pitch, that way
maturity sets in,
