Observable Aging vs Unobservable Aging

When we are getting old,
we are experiencing some changes in our own bodies.
Some are having swelling bellies
while some are haviang whitening hair.
Their aging is easily seen.


Some others are experiencing changes
that are not easily seen.
Some are having weakening bones; or
some are having joint-aching.
Their aging is not easily observable.


Observable aging is less harmful to health
yet it is psychologically more damaging!


Unobservable aging is more harmful to health
yet it is psychologically less damaging!



It seems that the God is very fair!
You need not own them all~
yet you cannot leave them all~
