The Ages of a Woman

The Ages of a Woman


Here's a neat little poem about how women feel at various stages of their lives.

  • Age 8: Looks at herself and sees:

    Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty.

  • Age 15: Looks at herself and sees:

    Cinderella/Sleeping Beauty/Cheerleader, or if she is PMS'ing: sees:Pimples/UGLY ("Mom, I can't go to school looking like this!")

  • Age 20: Looks at herself and sees:

    "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" - but decides she's going out anyway.

  • Age 30: Looks at herself and sees:

    "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" - but decides she doesn't have time to fix it so she's going out anyway.

  • Age 40: Looks at herself and sees:

    "too fat/too thin, too short/too tall, too straight/too curly" - but says, "At least I'm clean" and goes out anyway.

  • Age 50: Looks at herself and says:

    I am" - and goes wherever she wants to.

  • Age 60: Looks at herself

    and reminds herself of all the people who can't even see themselves in the mirror anymore. ...goes out and conquers the world.

  • Age 70: Looks at herself and sees:

    wisdom, laughter and ability - goes out and enjoys life.

  • Age 80: Doesn't bother to look.

    Just puts on a red hat and goes out to participate in the world.

  • Age 90:

    Can't see and doesn't worry about it!
