Aging Nightmares

You dread
the thought of aging
wrinkles
helplessness

You see others
old
yet, they look
oh, so young

"Where is it?"
you ask
The fountain of youth
they fell into

Nice work, Helen. For my part age and youth are, n the last analysis only a state of mind!

It might be happiness or at least a contentment at having come to terms with life and aging.

Then, there are the plastic surgeons, especially when you look at celebrities you remember as adults when you were barely starting school. :)
