Hello I figured something out so here’s the Poems. It was easier than I thought. Thank Goodness. 🤩I’m going to update previous post with poems so it be in multiple places.
P.S. Dont forget the word prompt exercise. Have fun 🤩
Old Age Is…1
Old age is a warm bowl of Cream of wheat.
Gumming the thick substance
Wondering how did I get this way.
I took care of myself, now I’m using
A walker racing down the nursing home
halls to the restroom.
I should have had kids
I wouldn’t even be here
Lonely the act of being alone,
hurts me deep inside.
I guess family didn’t love me enough
To take me in.
Watching my spouse, friends
and family all pass away
makes me ask, did God forget about me?
I want to go home too.
Each morning I wake up and say Damn!
He didn’t beam me up through the night.
If these C.N.A.’s gives me a chance
I just might O.D.
No one will miss me.
No one listens to me
I’m always wrong
My life has been prolonged
Old is a cold bowl of cream of wheat
Cold as my body one Sunday morning
Sitting on a tray next to my bed as a
Robin sings my eulogy on my window pane.
What did my family and I have to gain
All I know that my heart is in no pain.
Old Age is …2
I have lost my hair and teeth
gumming a bowl of Cream of Wheat
I tell the nurses to heat up
my prune juice because it’s the only thing
I get sweet.
Range of Motion exercises
Beach balls galore
I tell the nurse to lock my wheelchair in
Or that ish would just let me hit the floor.
B-I-N-G-O ! Bingo I scream.
My winnings I redeem
Just a candy bar
Cookies and Cream
I lost everyone I love
Don’t pity me
Im the only one left
I’m to stubborn to leave
All I have is myself.
