it’s ok to be 50
she looks squarely into a mirror
the elevens now more pronounced then ever
a few more fine lines trace her skin,
the softness fleeing her face is quite evident
mere symbols of the battles she has fought 
bold ribbons of honor, she wears them elegant
yet, there is an earned beauty
smoldering blue eyes of confidence
the million dollar smile she accrued with interest
she snickers; almost
and honestly, she wouldn’t want to be 21 again
because she absolutely loves the view from here
and really, it is ok
she is good
to be 50
Author's Notes:
I am actually 54, but it took me 4 years to admit to it.
Thankfully, I still pass for 45, so it's all good.

LOL! Henry looks like he's 110. I think he helped  Noah build the Ark! LOL! This was cute. Age is only a number, you are how you feel you are. Joe

I understand this so well...I haven't reached that mark yet, but somehow I have the feeling turning fifty will not sit well with me..I never imagined forty..! Ah well, we can't fight it, may as well enjoy it and admit it...50 years can have a lot of good living and good tips in it, lol...
We women ARE better with age...
This was kind of cute, kind of sad but nicely done!

I love the self-confident wit in this.  I like the 'it is what it is' attitude.  Your poetic style is imprinted in this.  A very readable style.  Keep them coming!

And you sure look fine to me still Cindy, after all its just a number nothing more nothing less, beauty as they say is ageless so you have nothing to worry about.
