"My soul is a thousand years old . . . "


Most of us fear getting old nowadays, we try everything to help stay healthy; thinking immortality might be fun, we eat well, exercise, consult doctors. But, aging is just a part of living, we started the moment of our birth; yet some of us were born with an old soul, and that's exactly what happened to me. Since a little girl I have just seemed old, well, at least had a beautiful old soul; that's what all my family always said, oh yes, they said that girl has an old soul. My skin is not baby smooth anymore, and bones creak a little now and again; my hair is not that of a young woman, yet, my physical beauty seems frozen. For there is inner beauty shining bright, with deep inner knowledge beyond my years; I have old ears for slow nostalgic tunes, appreciating quiet, mindful time. Oh, I am the epitome of calm, I have no interest in the fashion crazes; loving vintage and interesting instead, because my grandma said- I was born old. _______________________ June 4, 2019 Poetry/Verse/A Beautiful Old Soul Copyright Protected, ID 19-1149-953-02 All Rights Reserved.

Ohh Constance this is such a charming and evocative write and although I do not know you personally I would say it describes you completely. For I imagine you do have an old soul with an inner beauty - it comes through your poetry and it is beautiful Constance. Good luck in the contest, with kindest thoughts Ann xx A FAV for me!
