OLDNESS

OLDNESS
Once I had freckles, now I have wrinkles.
Chalk it up to my oldness.
Once there was presence, replaced by flatulence
Oftentimes caused by my oldness.
 Many’s the time I wanted to rhyme
and pour out my feelings on paper, 
but life interfered and my choices were veered 
and I thought I would get to it later.

So later is now and I find myself older
And taking the reins, I face life much bolder
By learning new things and seeing wild visions
and blessing each day throughout every season.
When this lifetime ends and another begins
I’ll count those as friends who wield mighty pens.

I am sure my freckles will turn to wrinkles in due time, too. ;) Wrinkles are merely a sign of wisdom! :) Have an amazing day, your poem is wonderful. Hugs!
