Reflections in the water
Faceing my time
The wrinkles in my skin
Telling the story of my life

There are lines for the tears
In the flesh below my eyes
Lines for the laughs
Playing delicately around my mouth

Lines for the anger
In my forhead
Lines for the pain
On my brow

Lines for the care
On my hands
Lines of the sun
On my shoulders

They may be ugly
These lines of mine
But still I love them
They tell my life
just looking at myself in the mirror today, noticing the various faint lines already showing themselfs, although nobody else sees them. I was thinking about how they will look in 30 or 40 years, how they will become definined, and Ill probly hate how they will look. but in the end, i should love them because they will tell my story in a way. outter beauty fades relitively fast, but inner beauty and experiences stay with us, although youth doesnt.
