Some Bodies - Poem by David Harris

Some bodies are so well lived in
they look older than their time.
Hard living has aged
every crease, wrinkle and line.
They look much older
than they really should.
Their expressions is worn out,
their laughter thin and bare.
The life they’ve lead
has taken the toll there.
The youth they should have
has disappeared without trace,
now all everyone sees is hardness,
no softness or grace.
Many things can cause this aged look upon a face,
that’s worn and tired look, long before its time.
Some say it is caused by this and that,
but no one is really sure.
Only that it happens
and it could to anyone.

    I'm living proof on that bit....up until these last three years...I could honestly say I always looked younger than my age....but with all the stress I have had to deal with...I've now aged about 15 years in three.....and think I look much older than my age....Proof is in the Pudding: O) (Report) Reply
