Someone Said Aging! (Poem)

Someone said aging!

Those grey strands on my head,

Don't they tell the story,

Of the beautiful years gone by.

Someone said, wrinkles!


Those fine lines on my face,

Don’t they represent an era each,

Of my wonderful life.

Someone said, dark circles!


Those dark circles around my eyes,

Don’t they resemble fine brush strokes,

By the artist, who is above us all.

Someone said, the creases!


Those fine lines around my neck,

Don’t they highlight my experiences,

My submissions and my struggles.


Someone said, retire and sit back!


But I feel more enthusiastic,

I love, laugh, smile, dream,

Like I always used to do,

Rather in a more matured way.


I love those signs(of aging) and symbols,

They give me a feeling of gratitude,

And a deep sense of satisfaction,

They remind me, of my worthwhile life.

Flowers have a very short span of life. But they make lives beautiful.

Flowers have a very short span of life. But they make lives beautiful.
