When I Get Older

I have my mantras

At 45 I still believe myself to be 28

With scars and wounds, opened for all to see

Perfection to the stars

With mud underneath my nails and yes, hair on my ass.

 

They go as the following, if my life force allows me onward.

Fabulous at 50

Sexy at 60

Stunning at 70

Energized at 80

Nesting at 90

 

I will follow the wisdom of the women before me, behind me and next to me.

Because in the present I shed my skin at night and dress up in the morning.
