A poem about the elderly
Look in their eyes, what do you see?
Just an inconvenience that has to pee?
Maybe you see dollar signs hanging from a tree?
Whatever it be, look deeper to see
There’s so much more than pee
Memories and advice to give to thee
A life filled with hopes and dreams that were already seen
If you look past the wrinkles I can guarantee
You will find so much more than an old nobody
They’ve been where you’ve been and made it through with glee
They weren’t always the way you see
They once were so much like thee
So take some advice from me
See past the wrinkles and pee
Pull up a chair and listen with glee
Cause the wisdom sitting before thee is quickly fading
