All this anti-ageing shit
is doing my bloody head in.
Getting older is an honour,
not a shameful sin.
The adverts always telling us
to smooth away the lines.
To make sure we look gorgeous,
and dressed up to the nines.
But what is gorgeous anyway,
simply a beauty held by all.
If only we’d look deeper,
and beyond the painted wall.
Our outward signs of ageing,
merely show our time on earth.
They’re everything to do with life,
but not our fuckin’ worth.
Don’t bother with the smoothing,
it’s just a fruitless task.
Instead, have the adventures,
who knows how long they’ll last.
A privilege denied to many,
ageing is a win.
Let’s make it a delightful honour,
not a shameful sin.
