I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
Youthfulness fades is a poem about feeling the effects of old age creeping upon you. Your youthfulness no longer sparkles. You feel aches with the Winter chill. You experience brain fog, where your thoughts are confused or lost. You remember being young just like it was yesterday .
"Don't Blink - by Kenny Chesney "
Her youthfulness fades,
no longer sparkling
like a fresh coat of snow.
The coldness of Winter's chill
makes her joints creak
like a rusty tin man.
Her enthusiastic smile grows dim,
her thoughts in a constant fog
like the scarecrow without a brain.
Feeling the temperament of old age
creeping into her weary bones,
she remembers yesterday
like she is a young girl.
