On aging

Fissures and fractures youth and vitality spent
Strictures of time unresolved embers of pain
Beauty echoed among resolute imperfection
Tragedy and heartache fortified the same

Innocence unbroken blank canvas of fate
The tarnish and blemish the most esteemed
Tales are told through etches of grief
Frailty and humanity graciously redeemed

True beauty emerges in well weathered storms
Strength refined through pressure and fire
Illusions of perfection leave empty dull ache
While each woven tale weaves hope in the tired

Creased exhaustion and old weathered lines
Give acquiescence to passage of time
Heritage forged through daily routines
Legacies left for those on the climb
