Good grief, where does the time go? I posted a poem last time on the 29th? Oops!

Well, here I am and Carol Anne has really challenged me this time with her prompts. (That is probably the reason for my absence 🙂 )

So, this week’s prompt from Carol Anne is

“Feeling Beautiful”

and it reminds me of an advert that I saw a lot recently: One of the Spice Girls is advertising for some beauty cream stating that it reduces wrinkles and that we are worth it. Every time I see this advert I think: “But I do not want to reduce my wrinkles! I want to grow old gracefully.” Wrinkles symbolise wisdom for me and life-experience and not something I  need to erase or hide.

I am worth my wisdom and life-experience because I worked hard to survive all the drama and challenges and I am not going to hide them. My hang-ups are in other areas.

So what am I going to do with this prompt? I do this 🙂

I am worth it

I don’t care!

Am I a museum’s piece?

Worth only in perfect condition?

It begs believe what they want us to be!

It bothers me.

Worth only the young.

Am I the only one?

I feel beautiful, no matter what!


Happy Thursday to all of you and let me tell you: I think you are beautiful, no matter what!!!!!
