Just because your face is smooth
and your best bits remain uplifted
doesnít mean Iím less than you
that Iím not just as gifted

I can kiss like a teenager
can pet with animal pride
I donít need to borrow a car
when I want a quick joy ride

You laughed when I told you
inside Iím sixteen years old
you told me I was past it
I was mild sauce - not bold

You think Iím past my prime?
well let me tell you dear
it takes a little time to make
aged to perfection beer

I don't mind a drink that's smooth,
...I guess that is all right,
But if I had to pick and choose,
...I'd pick a drink with bite.
Betwen fine wine and cold Coors beer,
...the picking would be easy,
Don't get me wrong in what I'm saying,
...I never would pick sleezy,
But sure as shootin', I wouldn't drink,
...some high falootin' gin,
I'd drink a drink that's aged with body,
...with just a hint of sin,
So put them fancy glasses down,
...I'll drink straight from the bottle,
An aged to perfection lager beer,
...really revs my throttle.

(Hope you don't mind, I apologize, couldn't help myself)

I think Mike said it best, SHaron remember with each year comes experience but also a greater depth and wisdom, but also the ability to dip back into the pleasures of past years. Does that make sense?

It is not about being what people call old, it is thinking old that is the problem.
There are 15 yr olds in the body of 30 yr olds and 30 yr olds in the body of 15 yr olds.

SO rememeber to do something childish and silly every day, and something sensible and kind.

This is why I give brief thumbs up replies, cos otherwise I just rant on, and on, on....
Loved the poem.

Youthful lines
no longer were unwritten
but the volumes now contained
in each and every cell of time passed
were a library of the sensual
to be read by light with eyes
appreciating the depths
and in dark by finers
as the  felt the braile lessons
to be learned

Past your prime?? You?! Never!! Why, Sharon, you will always be in the prime of your life.

Loved the read. It's one of those pieces that needs to be put on every board in the world to remind people that they are never past their prime.

Thanks for the read.

I think of Wine when speaking of proper aging,
But thatís just me.

But past you prime?
I thought you were going to talk about
Slapping on a second coat of paint.
It doesnít matter the paint,
Itís the walls that matter,
Are they still standing.

Liked your poem
