Old: A Poem

Sadness consoled 
A heart so old 
Happiness dissolved 
a tale unknown 

I walked quietly 
feeling gold 
But their looks told me 
I am quite old 

I kept eyes down 
Feeling low
I hid tears now
Time you show

Tomorrow is better 
Love unsold
Age don’t matter 
Then the echoes told

  1. As I’m getting old I’ve noticed that there is this belief that elderly people should be relegated to the background. It’s particularly noticeable when I go for my evening walks, people look at me strange because I sing and bop along. I think I’m going to get deemed eccentric, but, as your poem demonstrates superbly, being subservient only brings unhappiness
