via Daily Prompt: Wrinkle


Beginning each day
A new wrinkle appears
The sun doesn’t help
To keep your skin clear.

Though you lather up
With sunscreen all day
The damage that’s done
Does not go away.

Freckles and moles
Wrinkles and scars
They won’t disappear
They stay where they are.

Time on the beach
Time spent in the sun
Will leave you blemished
Before you are done.

Sunburn and blisters
Will cause such pain
Don’t keep going back
Again and again.

You must wear a hat
And limit the time
That you will be spending
Out in the sunshine.
