Past it !!

Sometimes I look at myself and
I realise that life’s past me by
it’s hard to be optimistic
and it’s, oh so hard, not to cry

“You have a great personality”,
they say, “your beauty’s inside”
My beauty’s so far from the surface
it went long ago to hide !!

“Lines on your face make you interesting”
“They show that you have, had a life”
To me, all I see in my lines, are
a mother, a granny, ex-wife !

To some that’s a life in the making
and I should be happy, not whinge
There is so much, I still want to do
but the pain makes me physically cringe

So enjoy your life while you can
and grab it with plenty of fervour
For you cannot turn the clock back
and you don’t go on forever!

Artist's Description

When life seems to pass you by very quickly and suddenly you realise that your looks and body are failing. Others around you tell you that looks aren’t important but that’s not how YOU feel

I know that I am not the only one to feel this way some days..
and it’s not always a vanity thing, but can be a physical problem too…
