 Elders wisdom they wish to share

Often more than children can bare

Valuable words and not too fancy

Fall on ears of those too antsy

But lessons learnt not a total waste

Mind tools emerge as a copy/paste

-Eugenia

  4. 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!

  5. I find it amazing that I now appreciate all the drumming of wisdom my parents did – I sure didn’t back then. Now with my children, we’ll just have to wait and see. Good poem

    • 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.
