The hardest thing in this world is to live in it-Buffy the Vampire Slayer


Young in Skin
full of elasticity
But when I look in the mirror
an old woman stares back at me

So few years young
yet I feel so old
My peers prefer the heat
while I bask in the cold

Someday their eyes
will fade with their age
As the light of their youth
is left on the previous page

I will wave to them
as that time draws near
Then I will look in the mirror
my eyes shining without a tear

I'm basically a middle aged woman in a sixteen year-old's body...you think I'm kidding don't you?
