The real persona

The brooding expression and the dim smile,
Crackled corners of once beautiful eyes.
Crow’s feet and the wrinkles casting their anchor,
They have finally decided to stay.
Ah! The once blemish free skin
And the silky texture…
Nothing but the history for all the years to come.
Flowing, curly tresses have lost their sheen,
Tied into a tight small bun now,
A faint reminder of what once they had been.
Yet,
But, yet her fiery spirit has not been marred.
Her grit and resolve remain unbeaten,
So what, if in the flames of time and age
Her beauty is all lost and charred.
