Ravaged by Time

Ravaged by time

By life, work –

And grime

Is this worn face-

Really mine

What happened to-

That smooth faced-

Young youth

Who smiled all-

Of the time

Is this body –

Of mine now-

So ravaged by time

It’s now on the decline

The one thing

I’m sure is that

What hasn’t declined

With ravages of time

Is the imagination

And joy that I have

In experiencing life

After all as they say

Age is but a number

“It is all in the mind”
