Poem by Meghan Eddy

Sunrise Tantalize
I see you through weathered eyes
Compared to you I am young
But to Them, my song’s been sung.

The creases and the wrinkles
And the slowly fading twinkle
Of my eyes, tells the tale
The sad truth, tooth and nail.

I am frail, elderly, maybe old,
But still I can crack the mold
I can refuse to go down weary
I will be fiery, and devastatingly contrary.

I will travel and see sunrise,
Although it may be through weathered eyes,
Because compared to you I’m still young
And according to me my song’s just begun
