Why don't I feel old?

I still feel like I am young.
My daughter is a constant reminder that I have grown old and I should act so.
I tell myself while I gaze into the mirror, " you are old now, so you better behave as one."

I thought of my parents when I was my daughter's age who has stepped into teenage, They looked so old to me, and I must be as old as them. But heck! why the damn don't I feel old?

As much as I loved my birthdays and wanted them to come twice or thrice in a year, now I really wish they came once in a leap year!
Its not that I hide my age like most women, but I genuinely don't want to grow up!

Each day steals away my time, my age, and leaves me helpless..
Its not that I am really scared of death though I wouldn't want to die yet!
But that doesn't mean I want to be very old and die.

Why cant people live their age while still at least looking young? I'd hate to look wrinkled and scary all the time feeling young inside. I think none of us never really grow up. Its only the physical aspect which grows old, the mind is forever young! No? :)

  2. Of course the mind is forever young, and for now we are in the mind, and by the time we get to go over the mind, u will find u are eternally young.

    Now shazia, don't u see the eyes,they are the same,the tips of your fingers they are the same, the words that u have expressed , show the heart that is always the same.

    If u were here,i could have got the skipping rope and we would have jumped doubles.

    Have fun shazia, get more kiddy friends.
