looking in the mirror

I have learned that old age is a gift

and I shall go through it without a face lift.

This saggy old face

proves I'm a member of the human race,

and have been for quite some time.

I feel like I'm still in my prime.

So,yes,I can still take the pace

-and so can this saggy old face.

Age is only a number. I'm almost thirty, but still very much like a ten-year-old . . . a mature ten-year-old who is quite knowledgeable about many things, some things a ten-year-old shouldn't know anything about, but I can handle it because I'm so mature . . . for a ten-year-old.
I'm not a fan of facelifts or plastic surgery, or any kind of cosmetic surgery. I understand if someone has been marred and wants to erase the scars, but getting work done to try and hide your age is unnecessary and sad, much like getting breast or butt implants. If someone wants to get cosmetic surgery in order to feel better about themselves, I understand and won't condemn them for it, but I think people should learn to be comfortable with who they are and what they look like. Why do people think that aging is something only a small handful of us do? We all do it! Stop hiding it!
Anyway, I'm glad you've decided to accept your natural, beautiful self. Sagging and wrinkling is not necessarily a bad thing - look at Helen Mirren. :)
