Age

Age?
For some aging is feared!
However,
It is ignorance
That should have many
Scared to death and frightened!
Running at break neck speed,
To escape from its destructive force!

Not a wrinkle has chased me away yet!
And they come...
One by one,
Using silent tactics,
To get me feeling a bit uncomfortable...
In their presence!
Although I do admit...
Having more than a few around,
Can become quite intimidating!
