You inevitable menacing eventuality
You irreversible fading of faculty
Invisibly existing from inception
Locked within the crate of infancy
Overridden- 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 alluring design
To devour till one’s frail and gaunt
You who strike till one’s totally beaten
You who bite till 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.
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.
Good health is important for graceful ageing. Looking good at old age is about taking good care of your health right from young age
Keep fit, take care of your health, stay happy and whatever you o, not war against the aging process – it will win eventually. Welcome it, embrace it. Be happy with it.
Love people around you, love yourself.
Don’t be frustrated by anything.
Wishing you all graceful ageing.
