An Ode to being 54

An Ode to being 54

March 11, 2017 | Jill Ladd

So here I am, I’m 54


And sitting here quite vexed


I’ve done a lot , but lots to do


So what do I do next ?



You’d think by now, I’d know a lot


With letters by my name


Does that help me sort it out ?


My doubt puts me to shame



Am I young or am I old ?


I guess it depends who asks


My age on paper is not how I feel


We hide behind our masks …



Is it wrong to bootcamp hard ?


Or start new hobbies now ?


You bet your life it’s not !


And I will show you how 😄



Whats in a number? I hear you ask


It’s 2 score and fourteen


There’s stories to tell ( and some to keep)


About places I have been



We all reflect as we get old


About life and loves and tears


I’m thinking now about the way


I’ve grown along the years



Our families are the central point


And mine are just the best


The focus moves and bonds just grow


When they fly the nest
