Old Lady

"bag of bones"


I wonder if when you look at me
You can't bring yourself to like    the  vanity
Lost  somewhere  inside - 
I wonder if beauty lives..... in you???

Poor old lady; 
-perhaps you should not pass judgment 
For one day
I might be
Just 
Like 
You!

A charming, yet truthful poem, PD. I love the honesty and self-awareness. You look mighty fine to me though. I'm sure your husband would agree too. Love always. RW

Beauty is what it is: this to somebody, that to another. When we die, the songbird that escapes from our hearts is beauty. Bravo Poet!

The head and the heart can keep you young for ever.Forgive everything along the way and everyone with no exception and fill yourself with love.Without judgmental thoughts about others or yourself, you will become the fountain of youth.You will move through each stage of life with the the joy of a child.But then I never grew up and that's the way I like it.lol;Thalia(Michael no more)Anne Ainsley.

My son (who happens to be 40) calls me "Old Lady", (an inside joke) I tell him I am just well seasoned. I love, love, love this piece.

Good perspective. Youth see the old with disbelieving eyes--they never expect to be that way, but if they live long enough they will. I love your poetic thoughts.
