Age’s Defining Factors

We wish

to be younger

but the lines

by our eyes

are the proof

of joy

 

The creases

on our foreheads

show there are people

we care for

 

The gray hairs

speckled upon our scalps

visualize the stressors

we’ve endured

 

These are

the defining factors

which highlight

the transformations

we’ve made

to become

the beautiful souls

we are now
