Each line
Each wrinkle
The lines on my forehead
Run between my eyebrows
Jutter from the corners of my eyes
Develop, evolve as muscles contract
As I smile, frown, squint and occasional habitual facial expressions
Cause wrinkles to become more prominent overtime
Often life catches up on you
From frown lines to crow’s feet to settled lines that sit on your face
Tell a story
Tell many stories
Some told, some untold
There is nothing fake here
Just natural beauty that is still smouldering.
