Aging With Grace

avoiding the ravagesaging with grace
age would demand
would seem divine
looked at more closely
I would decline

old friends would shy away
noting my constant
appearance day by day
never a wrinkle
‘what’s wrong’ they would say

young ones would wonder
how wise, my thoughts strange
younger generation
styles would change

knowing all I would do
was secretly concealed
never tarnishing my youth
too great a temptation to abuse

lines on my face
as the years go by
are the beauty within
why would I want to deny

Aged Eyes

as an ancient book
embellished in gold
aged eyes chronicle
truth and wisdom
do you peer deeply
can you read their story
