Rewinding the Past by Amy Carothers

Rewinding the Past
By Amy Carothers

Years slipping by
faster than we can hold on to
The mirror reflecting a face that shouldn't be so
For some the marching of time is their greatest fear
While others see it as a map of life's accomplishments

Each dent or slope a hidden memory
A gray hair, not something to be pulled but examined

Watching children skipping down the street
Don't envy their energy
but take a deep breath
and reclaim your own

The passing of time can not be altered 
                                                          Ticks on
Make it count!
