Poetry: “Age”

More thoughts on age and how we view it.

***~***~***~***

Age

Where age was once
A badge of honor
Proof of how
You persevered
Now become
Something quite shameful
Every sign
Thus tucked away
Faces altered
To look younger
Each birthday looked on
In despair
The ones who are
By old age altered
These we tuck
Off in a home
Connection severed
Brutally
But without old age
We lose our balance
Cause every young thing
Must grow old
