|OH YES DEAR SISTER! This is a beautiful write and even though it is light, it gives a serious message for all of us. We not only need to keep ourselves beautiful but we need to have a beautiful spirit too and care about the things that go way beyond youth. Like love, caring, nurturing, protecting, doing everyday mundane jobs like doing the laundry, getting the groceries, taking our children to school, going to our children's school functions, smiling when your kindergartener brings home an abstract drawing, and you put it under a magnet on the fridge, like taking the time to enjoy the laughter of your children playing without a care in the backyard, going out of your way to make someone's days a little better and brighter than it would have otherwise been. I could go on and on and on. But I will stop here. I'm sorry if I was rambling but this poem can make a person do that. Thank you for sharing Chanti. This is a very beautiful and all too true piece.
May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and who love you, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister, Barbie.

|You make your point gently, humorously and without invective. This is so much more effective than harsh diatribe. Hurrah for you!|

|Look good by all means and take care of yourself
Just focus on the things that never grow old
that don’t fade away and can never be sold
On kindness, compassion, integrity and truth
These are the things that last way beyond youth.
Most apt and timely advice, Chanti. I could not agree more with the theme of this poem. Thank you. Love and best wishes,

|Clever, insightful, and honest, Chanti.
You don't leave your manufactured woman
much to feel good about--at least, not for long.
I admire and envy your talent to rhyme.

|Thank you Chanti as I often say look past the $ signs and see what true beauty is. Anyone can pay for it but they can't buy the true beauty that each carry on the inside. Thank you for sharing.
Newfie hugs, Rose

|Aging naturally IS aging gracefully. I'll take natural breasts over fake ones any day of the week, even if she has to tuck them into her front pockets. Give me crows feet over a plastic, pulled back face, let the gray hair find its own way through and bless me with "being you."|
