Silhouette πŸ‘₯


How do we look when we become senior citizens?

What a silly question!

Be cool my friend.

I meant our appearance externally.

People are not willing to age graciously.

I have come across a few senior citizens who hate themselves because their face is no more attractive and thus busy spending time and money on cosmetic surgery and other methods.

But still, can they look how they were during their younger days?

Can they compete with teenagers or with middle-aged people?

Can they not be happy that they are leading a peaceful life, the way it is?

But who am I to express my thoughts?

True. I am nobody.

That is the problem with we, the humans.

My friend, we are what we are.

We never change.

We are experts in expressing our thoughts and giving free advice but rarely apply them to ourselves.

Why do we try to be attractive against nature’s wishes?

My friend, this is because of the thought of insecurity.

Insecurity for what?

I can’t understand.

“A human being sheds its leaves like a tree.

Sickness prunes it down;

And it no longer offers the same silhouette to the eyes which loved it, to the people to whom it afforded shade and comfort”

Jules De Goncourt

How do I appear externally?

Rich in silver hair & yet to bald totally.

Do you wish to appear younger, as you are ageing?

If so what is that one simple reason you wish to look younger?

I am curious to know.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

  1. I don’t know what you are talking about, my friend (only kidding!).
    I am always 18, even though next week I’ll be turning 71. I don’t have time to age, gracefully or otherwise; I am too busy working, having fun, and generally enjoying myself. When people say that I am in my early fifties, or when they compliment me on tasteful make up, while I have no make up on, I answer that I do not let age to catch up with me. The secret is keeping busy!
