my youthful pride

my looks of yesteryear
are passing away
now in my present
lesser than before
outer appearance
me getting used to me
is the song
left to be sung
for when
my older years
have become
more palatable
and maybe then
yes then
I’ll be more willing
and able
to swallow
my youthful pride

peace out
