Age with Grace

The statue of the older woman looks as if she blends in with the surrounding. As the years of her youth slowly goes by, she loses her vibrancy in her appearance and in her mind. The responsibility of becoming an adult had worn her out. The older a person becomes, the less amount of freedom they truly have. It is a result of being tied down to responsibilities such as work, family, and earning money. Children would not have to care for these things because they have their parents who take care of it for them. When children progress and become older, they are faced with many different challenges that wear them out. It is inevitable and inescapable that everyone gets old. The older you get the more your mind and physical body lacks the energy that was once there when you were a child. People chase youth by fixing their appearances but it is important to be able to accept and embrace that aging is bound to happen to everyone. With age comes with wisdom. The experiences during a person youth should always stay close to their heart. Those experiences contribute to who an individual becomes. Like the Grand Canyon, the old woman is faded by the natural world around her. However, that does not inherently mean disfigurement and grotesque, instead, it reveals the beauty that lies beneath the surface.
