The Greys, the Dimples, the Rolls, the Wrinkles,

Share This Post

The greys, the dimples, the rolls, the wrinkles,
Don’t strip you of your grace.
The lines, the weight, the clothes that pinch,
Don’t steal light from your face.

If you could see what I can see,
Your world would open wide.
The way your smile lights up the sky,
The soul you have inside.

The greys, the dimples, the rolls, the wrinkles,
Don’t wash you of your wonder.
The lines, the weight, the clothes that pinch,
Aren’t worthy of your anger.

If you could see what I see now,
Such beauty carved through time.
You’d grieve the years you missed that joy,
The tears and wasted time.

The greys, the dimples, the rolls, the wrinkles,
Don’t steal away your light.
But the way you talk down to yourself,
Those harmful thoughts, just might.
