Archive Sunday – Should I Tell?

She hoped to be better with time

She longed to sharpen her mind

It saddened me to see her blue

Never receiving credit when due

Always hiding her lies in vain

Her pitiful soul in unrelenting pain

Her faded eyes revealing all

She struggled so, to stand proud and tall

Chaos in her mind often trapped

A maze of confusion and not tightly wrapped

What about her fall?  Was it a clumsy trip?

Or a blurred mind losing its grip?

So you ask, where is she now?

I remember her fall all too well

Should I live a lie or should I tell?

  8. Eugenia,

    The harsh reality of getting old, right? It’s scary to think about, isn’t it? Nicely done, though. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you, Cathy! I think of ageing as getting older and not getting old! 🌷


      • Eugenia,

        I think interests keep us young at heart. That’s something we need to engage in daily so we don’t get old inside, you know? BTW, I’m following your lead with pinning featured posts at the top of my blog with my BoTB. This round I’m not getting the nibbles as usual. I suspect folks are probably busy with A2Z prep and life in general. We’ll see how this goes. Now, to remember to unpin. πŸ˜€

      • I agree, Cathy, things that we enjoy keep us young at heart and in mind. Could be folks are busy like you say, and life is so confusing these days, it’s difficult to focus. I like the idea of featured posts pinned to the top of a blog as brings more attention to it. My theme automatically pins featured posts which is one of the reasons I chose it.
