NOT JUST MY VERSE YOUR TWO TWO TOO!- THE WRONG SIDE OF 40- A POETRY CHALLENGE FROM RORY (A GUY CALLED BLOKE)
Thank you, Linda Lee of “Charmed Chaos” for passing the baton to me!
Welcome to ….
Not Just My Verse, Your Two Two Too!
Once the poem [Verse] leaves my blog, the next blogger along can take it where ever they want with regards to their own four-line verse but always staying on topic.
Got it? Remember to tag another poet to keep it going!!
Topic: The Ageing Process
The Wrong Side of 40
How l wish, that when l was younger,
My parents had been somewhat bolder,
Concerning the aging process and the wonders,
Blunders, pitfalls, and perils of getting older!
Wrinkles in my skin have begun to bloom
I dare not look in the mirror much longer
Mom once said, child, you can forego this doom
Honestly, she couldn’t have been any wronger
How can I write about the wrong side of 40
When that was over 35 years ago
I’ve seen the wrong side of 40, 50, 60 and 70
So I wish you all luck, “Care for some tea?”
Me, I’m in my middle sixties
With new lines on my face each day
Road maps I call them of my twenties
And I wouldn’t want it any other way!
Several types of tissue, skin, fat, muscle, and bone
I’ve proudly earned my crows feet and wrinkles so thin
No, I don’t want a facelift or botox, just leave me alone
Aging naturally and gracefully is not a mortal sin!
I now pass this along to Kristian of (Tales From The Mind of Kristian)…
