SELF-DEPRECATION

My hair has turned a silver grey,
My skin looks like a cloudy sky.
My blue eyes can see my double chin,
My long nose is always sticking in.
My stomach forgotten how to be thin.
My heart itself has almost given in,
My brain itself is losing from within.
My mind has given up giving in,
MY self esteem is growing thin.
My rhymes don't know how to begin,
My wrinkled skin needs ironing:
My my, Self-deprecation with a smile.
