inspired by Gray Panther Maggie Kuhn, who said, "I'm proud of every wrinkle I've earned!"


A face without a wrinkle is a face that never cried That never had a worry, whose loved ones never died We earn our wrinkles one by one, each born of joy and strife Each is a badge of honor from the battlefield of life. Your face, it is a cover upon your book of days That book is like none other, and likewise for your face Your honest eyes, your noble nose, your smiling lips so fine And don't forget the wrinkles, they're part of the design Wrinkles are like memories that are etched upon your face and just like all those memories, they cannot be erased The memories of working hard, the joy of giving birth and all the endless struggles of the people of this earth So don't stay in the sun too long, avoid the bitter cold But still those careworn lines will come, it's part of growing old Look deep into your mirror where all true love must start Let wrinkles be a roadmap right to your loving heart! words and music by Kristin Lems c2005 Kleine Ding Music
