We offer observations on the human condition from a 23 year old mind trapped in an 83 year old body.
NOBODY ASKED ME BUT
Some read newspaper with grim face.
In Depression we grew lean with age.
Some fold arms when listening to another speak.
A human touch is the most powerful statement of esteem.
Few can understand exactly what “I” says.
Adults feel happy touching babies.
Adults will never know what the child knows.
A kiss more powerful than millions of dollars.
We feel a sense of power paying for others.
For some, more dollars, more self esteem.
Some climb physical mountains, some mountains in the mind.
Some are strollers through life.
American heroes in 2014 are from the family.
Always talk with child using an adult voice.
For modern youth the past does not linger in their minds.
