The golden natural rule holds,
The one who is here born will age
And end in His folds.
On birth and death none has sway
But many owing to subjective follies dearly pay,
By ageing prematurely and decay.
Ageing in us is a ticking clock
That in all our bodies we lock,
Our DNA has ageing variables
Which makes one either livable or perishable.
Ageing clock ticks on and obeys its own
Timetable till end
Does not care the orders of improvished or crown.
Time of death is not determined at birth or by birth
One can defy ageing by building
Resistance to ward off the bombardment of decaying molecules
Ageing could be slowed by planting hope for hopeless
And help for helpless
Will to fight odds will trigger
Our coping mechanism to fight stress
And thus ageing
Medication holds appeal to many
Engenders calmness and inner peace aplenty
Yoga infuses relaxation to fused self
Helps humans to back speed ageing molecules of oneself.
