A WOMAN'S FACE:

A WOMAN'S FACE:
(as the mirror reflects)
 
Helen had a face that launched a thousand ships,
Mine would launch a canoe.
With visable lines here and there
I don't know what to do.
 
I bought creams advertised on TV,
But to no avail.
What they don't tell you on TV
That they're promoted by young girls.
 
The mirror is no longer a friend,
That I have you know.
For looking into the "Evil Glass"
One more line it shows.
 
The problem is I feel "Young"
Not a bad thing I agree.
But it's the outside that's all wrong,
The part people see.
 
But I do possess an inner peace,
That comes out on top.
Perhaps my friends one day,
I'll have a go at Botox.
 
Perhaps you think I'm vain,
Perhaps you think I'm mad.
But I like to think they're laughter lines,
Which at the end of the day is not so bad.

  2. Aging on the outside happens. We just have to stay young at heart. That's what matters anyway.

  5. I think most women don't like the changes age brings. But hopefully age has brought wisdom and a sense of accomplishment. If you have inner beauty, that should still shine through, even if your face is etched with lines.

  7. I think women who age gracefully are beautiful. My mom probably feels the same way as you do, Yvonne, but I tell her every day that's she's beautiful and looks twenty years younger than her actual age. <3
