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.
