You inevitable menacing eventuality
You irreversible fading of faculty
Invisibly existing from inception
Locked within the crate of infancy
Override, terrified by juvenile
But courageously storming at the climax
You resolutely descend at retirement
Pushing to the loathsome derailment
Pretty creatures to deterioration
Your revolting withered achievement
Reveal thy alteration proof
Oh! You formidable lethal unguis
Power beyond the competence of wits
You slight the concealing mask to fix
And defeat the slowing ploy with time
Your dentine tearing all resistant tricks
To wreck the fabric of the alluring design
To devour till one’s frail and gaunt
You who strike til one’s totally beaten
You who bite til one’s wholly eaten
Mock and dare me your grip to resist
For each attempt your fang to deepen
Follow the hollow to the depth within
Keep toiling till the entirety is damned.
We watch ourselves grow older each day, we watch the wrinkles appear at places we don’t want them to. We watch our skins slack and dull off. We try our best to preserve the youth we want – because actually before the people of this world youth is more desirable and we really want our physical appearance to please them.
But no matter how much we try to keep fit, applu cosmetics and eating the right diet, ageing someday conquers.
When we take drastic measure to limit the ageing process, there is always the unfailing point when ageing turns defiant and intractable – that’s exactly the time it hits hard.
Kindly stay away from a battle with ageing – it will win eventually.
Don’t just exercise, take good care of your health as well. Good health is important for graceful ageing. Looking good at old age is about taking good care of your health right from young age
Love people around you, love yourself.
Don’t be frustrated by anything.
Wishing you all graceful ageing.
