Can’t Stop Time

By Mira Khatib

 

Old age they say comes naturally,

One should grow ever so gracefully

But,

As wrinkles are lined

And bones not so kind

Aches here and there

Trying not to despair

Covering of greys

And plucking of strays

Moisturizing and hoping

Skin will stop moping

Trying to reverse time

Or conquer a body that was mine

Yet alas, no matter how hard I try

There is no way to deny

That I cannot defy time

So I make best with what I have

And believe that beauty within

Is what matters in the end.
