Getting old #2

dependent-dementia-woman-old-70578I like getting old for bad reasons

I used to envy prettier women

Now they are getting on

Now they are gray grannies

Like me

Invisible

Heads don’t turn anymore

I went through life making faces at those women

Not nice of me I know

Sometimes I am not nice

But now I can say to them

Don’t worry, even if you are old and wrinkly and fat

You are of value

Beautiful inside

I know just what to say

Having been told that

Back when.
