Looking Back

by Edgar A. Guest

I might have been rich if I'd wanted the gold
instead of the friendships I've made.
I might have had fame if I'd sought for renown
in the hours when I purposely played.
Now I'm standing to-day on the far edge of life,
and I'm just looking backward to see
What I've done with the years and the days that were mine,
and all that has happened to me.

I haven't built much of a fortune to leave
to those who shall carry my name,
And nothing I've done shall entitle me now
to a place on the tablets of fame.
But I've loved the great sky and its spaces of blue;
I've lived with the birds and the trees;
I've turned from the splendor of silver and gold
to share in such pleasures as these.

I've given my time to the children who came;
together we've romped and we've played,
And I wouldn't exchange the glad hours spent
with them for the money that I might have made.
I chose to be known and be loved by the few,
and was deaf to the plaudits of men;
And I'd make the same choice should the chance
come to me to live my life over again.

I've lived with my friends and I've shared in their joys,
known sorrow with all of its tears;
I have harvested much from my acres of life,
though some say I've squandered my years.
For much that is fine has been mine to enjoy,
and I think I have lived to my best,
And I have no regret, as I'm nearing the end,
for the gold that I might have possessed.

Whether it be too much screen time or a lack of sleep, dark circles under the eyes are a common insecurity that most encounter at one point in their life. Luckily, you can actually gradually lighten these circles with just a few foods from your kitchen. Make your own natural skin care products in the comfort of your own home to nourish and replenish the skin under your eyes.



The anti-inflammatory benefits of honey are great for soothing skin near the eye without irritating it and helping to reduce dark circles. Regular application provides moisture to the under-eye area and keeps the skin soft by preventing moisture loss and rejuvenating the under-eye. The sticky, sweet food is enriched with several vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, which help to regulate blood circulation and have natural bleaching properties that lighten the pigmentation under the eye. The antioxidants in honey also help maintain the natural elasticity of the skin under the eyes which have been known for helping with dark circles.


Just like honey, lemon juice also works as a great natural treatment for dark circles that is known for excellent bleaching properties. Lemon juice is rich in vitamin C and citric acid which when combined, have a powerful effect on the skin. While Vitamin C helps to enhance collagen production, citric acid uses skin lightening benefits, and together, the two tighten the blood vessels and prevent wrinkles and dark circles from forming. Lemon juice is also rich in various nutrients such as calcium, proteins, phosphorus, carbohydrates, vitamin B, magnesium, etc. These nutrients help nourish the skin cells around the eyes and repair the damages, thus reducing dark circles.


Turmeric is a well-known natural ingredient for dark circles removal. It actually poses a powerful skin-lightening benefit. Curcumin, a very powerful antioxidant in Turmeric, helps treat various skin problems including dark circles. With its powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric fights off marks on the skin from aging and sun exposure. If used regularly, honey, lemon juice, and turmeric are bound to help you with your eye problems and spare you from paying for another skin product. Perhaps this is why so many skincare products use these foods as an ingredient to help reduce the appearance of dark circles.
