Aging is Priceless

aging 2

When I was a child I thought I was perfect

I never questioned the way I looked

Then I got older and perfection faded

I started to dislike parts of my body

My feet were too big and I was too tall

I disliked my hair and I hated my freckles

There were curves at the wrong places

I just wasn’t beautiful the way others were

Perfection was out of reach

So many things about me I wanted to change

And then nature came and changed it for me

I got age spots, lines and wrinkles for free

Many my age now pay a high price

To turn back time just a few years

To look like they did then

When they thought they weren’t perfect

I might be an older lady outside, but there is still the kid inside who wishes for wings or a mermaid tail. It took me a while, but I learned to love myself unconditionally and accept the way I look at any age.

Now, in my 50’s, I am old enough to know that I am perfect.
