Body killing me

I nourished this vessel with loving care
fed it so many gastronomical delights
garnished the skin with outerwear
for years not a blemish in sight

Regrettably , despite the trappings of health
this body has begun to show signs
the maladies that perhaps associated with age
mortality on the steady decline

Why the body chose to behave this way
and to attack so viciously
meant to be safe haven for life
but it's now slowly killing me

The End
