My Poetry. Old age.

Why do we grow old and vain? 
Complain about the economy? 
Mumble about the rain? 
Suffer from sore joints 
hardly get around 
trying not to stumble 
Struggling with Sounds. 
Running after children 
bailing out our kids 
vacuuming the carpets 
Pots without their lids!
Having to mind the steps
just in case you fall
memories so vivid
Getting harder to recall.
Standing in long lines
for money, we are due
worried what's on the tele
Sometimes feeling blue!
Sleeping every moment
you sit down on a chair
wondering why your old
And do people really care!
Chatting to the Neighbours
having tea all day
hoping as you age
You still have things to say!
Old age has its good points
I can name a few
sophistication and elegance
The ability to chew.
Honour and respect are
ultimately yours
playing with your grandchildren
Travelling on tours.
Educating young folks
giving them a chance
playing them old records
Bursting into dance.
Facebook welcome.
Thank you for Sharing me.
