A to Z Challenge Poetry

R is for Rhytiphobia #atozchallenge

There was a young woman named Bree
Who needed her face to stay wrinkle-free
She didn’t smile or frown
Shed no tears when down
Led a lonely life thanks to her personal decree

(c) Sanch @ Living my Imperfect Life

Note: Rhytiphobia is the fear of getting wrinkles

    A fear of wrinkles and there’s a word for that? Maybe botox will set her free! 😉

    Sounds like the Bree from Desperate Housewives, if you’ve watched the show you’d know where I’m coming from.

    I know many women who have this phobia but I think it’s more important to live a life full of emotions. Cry, laugh, smile and make faces, who cares about wrinkles 🙂

    I am sure there are many women who have this phobia! But they can surely use Botox and surgeries and spare themselves from loneliness et al! Silly people 😀
