Do women have a shelf life?

A time of years when they,

Aren’t beautiful anymore?

—-

Is there a time when beauty,

Seeps out through their bones;

Time a wretched thief stealing.

—-

Is beauty so vapid that,

It means only your looks,

Or a deeper quality?

—–

Do we place ourselves on,

That empty lost shelf,

Or do certain men place us?

——

Is beauty vital past youth,

Being pretty is —

Feeling fabulous inside.

—–

Then, peering in a mirror,

Pleased with what’s seen;

But wrinkles happen quickly —

—–

Beauty evaporates.

Some never had it, 

Only their own youthfulness.

—–

Youth a concept of the heart,

Not a looking glass;

Youthful beauty is rare.

——

What is your shelf-life woman,

I think you decide,

Old, or timeless beautiful?
