No hidden code to cypher
as ink on cotton stained
a neon sign it blinds the truth
is it easy to walk away?
Be direct this is no riddle
without an answer in a rhyme
gaze upon the mirrored reflection
no crystal ball through time
Seniors now for once were youth
do we feel exempt?
denial devised to sacrifice truth
I hear the echoes of the steps
Amidst youth or mid life strides, it is very easy to push the truth back out of the way replacing it with myths that growing old is so far down the road; the truth is, it is on our back porch, and we will be stepping down placing our feet on the same path of life’s fragility.
Let’s join our voices in fighting for change, in creating that very important communication concerning end of life care, and the dignity, respect, privacy and compassion that are not only deserved but is crucial for the quality of life in seniors twilight years when they are taking their final steps on this earth.
