 Elders have much wisdom to share

Often more than children can bare

Valuable words and not too fancy

Fall on ears of those too antsy

But lessons learned not a total waste

Mindtools emerge as a copy/paste

“Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.”

  1. Very clever in the manner in which it covers the subject. “The wisdom of the elders” hasn’t been embraced for a long long time now. Sad but true. “Cut and paste” mind tools emerging later in life has certainly been true in my own life!

    • Yes, I think as we get older we are more in tune with the reasons why we were told what to do and what not to do. Things my parents told me make sense now. I think it comes with maturity.
