Age defining

Close too wrinkles

And laughter lines

A face of age that defines

The life I’ve lived

Now well passed middle age

Funny enough only when I grow a beard does that go grey

But all these things I gained

Taking footsteps along the way

The way of life and the path

This journey continues still

I don’t look back into the past

I reflect nothing on the aftermath

I keep moving forward

Until my last gasp

Age and passing on beyond

Doesn’t scare me none

Only maybe the thought of a world and life where life is done

And only darkness and hatefulness

Become the norm as we continue on.
