 I AM A SENIOR AMERICAN

By Betty Leeth Haynes, Ms. Alabama Senior America 1997

Who Me?  America...Americans....Senior Americans

These words grow sweeter every day

and I know I identify in a special way!

When I think of the challenges we Seniors forsee.

I'm overwhelmed and ask the question, "Who, Me?"

Am I ready for this Computer Age

as I evaluate my life and turn a new page?

Well, the Lord blessed me with some talent,

I'm thankful to say, I write poetry, make speeches

and play the organ my way! 

And there are a few other things I can do

and just to name a few:

I can sing on key and dance the whole night through.

I'm a grandmother, a banker, a volunteeer and more.

I serve my church and community with hours galore!

I use words like I can and I will on bended knee,

And now I realize I've answered my own question, "Why not me?" 

BECAUSE...I represent the throng of SENIOR AMERICANS.

We're growing in numbers, with extended life spans.

We have maturity and experience when put to the test,

And we cherish our freedom and give our country our best!

We're the Age of Elegane and America's treasure,

With knowledge and energy that is truly beyond measure.

We're challenged to practice the "Golden Rule,"

And use it every day as our tool, to be role-models on the highway of life,

in a world filled with joy and strife.

We give our children and grandchildren our very best example

And we share our love and our resources as we lift them in prayer. 

Can you feel it, that intangible pride to be SENIOR AMERICANS, true and tried!!

What a joy to live in this day and time

And feel needed and wanted and still be in our prime.

We are SENIOR AMERICANS and we live in this wonderful land of the free.

Our hearts swell to "America the Beautiful" and

"My Country Tis of Thee"     Yes!

We are SENIOR AMERICANS please listen and please hear.

We still  have it together SO GIVE US A CHEER!
