~*~ Aged ~*~

via Daily Prompt: Wrinkle

Babies and old people have a lot of time on their hands. That's probably why they get along so well...lol...  A baby does not recognize the depth of the wrinkles or the texture of the skin..all they feel is safe, secure and adored by the old hands that hold them near..a bond like no other

 

Badges of honor

I wear with pride

it proves I’ve laughed

it’s shown I cried

the worry it chiseled

throughout history

shows a life lived

and is survival

natural am I

no dollars injected

I earned these wrinkles

I wouldn’t reject them

I was born with them

and I’ll exit the same

they were with me all along

just hidden by youth

my wrinkles hold my story

the whole damn truth.
