Wrinkles

He was upset and weary
Observing first wrinkle on face
So the sunny days of
Prime youth are finally over
And time is not very far off
When the mirror will ridicule
For more wrinkles will pounce
On body and face to take over.

He remained depressed and sad
Till one day realization came
All of us see first light as infant
Grow to a child, adolescent and teenager
As young then mature only to grow older
All are the phases of a life-cycle
Growing naturally is so graceful
In this mystical universe.

What we really need to care
To avoid wrinkles on mind and soul
Lest we begin losing compassion
For the nature and surroundings
Or even empathy, love and care
For our own beloved one(s)
Now and from the yesteryears.
