Content within.
~Serenity Prayer~

Lord grant me the serenity
To accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference
Living one day at a time
Enjoying one moment at a time.

A dimmed light helped me feel
That the picture that i showed
Was really who I am inside
When my heart is all aglow.

No time to primp and fuss
over aged and frizzing hair
I abandoned cream foundation
That emphasised each crevice there

T'was more for simple pleasantries
My etched lines are all upturned
I imagined me, myself within my heart
Younger ... but with all my lessons
truly learned.

If I should choose to feel my best and
Present the gal in me I'd rather see?
A lady that will face each day content
And look and feel the best that I can be...

it is really up to me.


always be thankful.
