We Are All Growing Older

10 Aug

We are all growing older
Some grow bitter
Some grow better
Laughter lines turn into wrinkles
Eyes lose their sparkle
Only shine with nostalgia
Tight jeans become rigid genes
Supple limbs become arthritic hymns
Singing of pain and discomfort
Sweet quiet voices become loud angry noises
Deafening the care giver
Irritating the partner
Sweaty hot love becomes dirty cold words
Deep conversations become short sharp snaps
Of instructions and prompts
The Great Outdoors becomes a walk in the yard
Gym work out and Instagram
Becomes a filtered memory
As glamour fades and old age raves
