    As I sit here waiting
    What is this I wait for
    For why I wait, this I know
    But it does not mean I like to wait
    As I wait I look around
    I see others around me, all around
    With more coming in, as I wait
    The more coming and going, all around
    As I look at those around me
    I try to picture what they looked like
    Without the wrinkles, without the bags
    For I see the age that was set upon them
    Can you still see the beauty without the mask
    Upon my eyes is someone beautiful
    But how would they look without the mask
    For as young or as old as I am
    I choose to not hide behind the mask of make-up
    But will we still look just as beautiful
    As age sets upon my body, for those things I don’t like
    They say with age comes wisdom
    But where does our looks come from with age
    For I am ready for the age to find me

    That is a great message and thanks for the reminder for age

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
