The other day was looking at anti ageing cream ad

Wondered if it would bring back the glow!

Will it really make me look younger

Or would it just be another no show!

And then I thought of my mom and her generation

They never vied to fight their age

Wise and engrossed with the nitty gritty of household

They wore their greys and wrinkles with grace.

We may look younger cos of cosmetics at disposal

But the creaking joints are a harsh reminder

That this body is no longer what it used to be

Youthful we may look, we ain’t getting any younger!

So forget this fight with flab, greys, wrinkles and the like

Be active, laugh a lot, eat and live

And remember what ever your age might be

Old age is still at a distance, do not crib.

  1. We spend far too much of our precious time on this Earth, worrying about things we can’t control. And, you said it right, old age is not a crib, it really is part of a journey that we should embrace. Here’s to aging with grace and poise! ❀
