PAD Challenge Day 7 Prompt: Self-Portrait

DSC_0327

The silver streaks are overtaking the blond highlights
Of shoulder length hair,
Well earned wrinkles replace the smoothness of youth
Softened by tears and fears overcome

Blue eyes dancing next to laugh lines
Deeply etched by joy and sorrow
Reading glasses perched on my head as much as my nose
Leaving creases on both

That furrow plowed by years of concentration, and maybe frustration
Now relaxed from experience
With the knowledge I don’t need to know everything
Some answers are better left unknown
