Forgotten Birds
* * *
We are nothing to our children,
old and useless,
used up by them -- by their youth,
edged aside by society,
of no worth even to ourselves,
we are birds
- - hearts and minds still soaring - -
wing-battered
on the rocks and sands of the day,
and all would prefer
if we'd just go away.
2009 ~ JM Shephard ~ JOY in the arts!
