Older

The older I get

the faster I realize

I have been just told a lie

By people I happen to love

The good thing is

the older I get

the more forgiving

my love becomes

The older I get

The more I realize

faces can be pretty

hearts can be ugly

The good thing is

the older I get

my face becomes ugly too

helping me accept the ugly hearts

The older I get

the more I realize

that life is a journey

which should be enjoyed

The bad thing is

the older I get

the shorter my journey

is going to be

  1. Hi, Ajay. This poem makes me realize the things we give and, sometimes unwittingly, sacrifice as we age. I did enjoy this though, and regardless, think aging is a beautiful thing.
