Poem -

MUCH TOO OLD

MUCH TOO OLD

Older kids are left behind because people want babies...

Just like the choice of a puppy or a dog...

On their eighteenth birthday Foster Care kids are kicked to the streets...

Approximately 58,000 college students are homeless...

People complain of hurts and pains as they get older and to some it's a frightening thought...

To see wrinkles and gray hair and boobs begin to sag...

Obesity hangs low over the waist line...

People living life so sad...

People needing medication to cope...

Thinking of ourselves and how tragic and unfair life has been handed...

Tears and broken hearts and the tragedy that a relationship didn't work out...

Teens are people too and imagine being five or older and no one wants you because, you're much too old...

So while you mull in your daily lives how bad you have it letting your negative thought fuel you and living is much too hard...

​​​​​​You being your main focus and blinded of the blessings you do still have...

Where a heart weighs a ton and a child needs a friend...

Hugs...

Love this Sparrowsong. It is the same everywhere. In the UK I work for a training organisation who take young people who maybe didn't do that well and we teach construction and life skills. Everyone else seems to give up on them. Great write.

Hello Sis Cleo...

If someone offered me all the money in the entire World to never die...

I would have to laugh and say why is the World finally going to get better?

If so, it shouldn't be this way now...

Give me a reason to stay and keep your money...

😊

Thank you for your kind comment and support!

Hello Nigel...

I'm glad it's still going well...

Contractors are going to be very scarce with many going into the Computer Field...

A lot of Contractors that did it old school are definitely going to be a thing of the past...

The work that's being done isn't the same quality indeed...

The materials you buy sure isn't the same quality...

Cars aren't, Car parts,Β  Clothing isn't, Furniture isn't, Toys aren't, same with Food...

Things are not meant to last so they sell more often...

They don't make a lot of extra money from me because, I'm old enough to know the difference...

😊

Thank you for your great works!

Thank you for your kind comment and support!

Hello Tony...

I love the Holidays I really do but, it also brings out more of the hypocrites and selfishness and I try very hard to ignore them but, man it's so hard...

Especially, the ones who claim to be a Child of God and it really gets under my skin like a parasite I have seen on T.V.Β Β 

I appreciate if they want to come across uneducated and brainless but, the ones who claim to have their faculties and ignorance too, I don't see how that actually works or that it can be seen as an excuse...

Many times I bite my tongue because, God says Shut up!

😞

Glad you enjoyed!

Hello Rock...

Unselfish happens, sometimes...Β Β 

I did a favor for a friend for 6 weeks twice a day free of charge for a trade for one week, one trip a day for a favor for me during the Holiday...

Knowing that I'm on a mission and when it would start...

All year and throughout the summer when I kept my end of the deal I was just informed today that I have to have plan B because, they're not going to be home now either...

Someone else came through and said they would be local and be happy to do it...

I'm waiting for the fee and train them so that works...

Thank you for your kind comment and support!

Hello Terry Kay...

I understand how your friend wouldn't them to leave...

There are good Foster Homes and unfortunately, not every child ends up in one...

Some Foster Homes are more abusive then what the child was pulled away from...

Thank you for your kind comment and support!
