Poetry By Ken in Rainbow Colors

Signs of age show on me
I'm not who I used to be,
Sweet youth has fled away
Leaving wrinkled and gray.

Long life has taken it's toll
Leaving me stooped and old,
No longer am I nimble or spry
And time has clouded my eyes.

Just because I've slowed down
Don't look at me and frown,
Don't judge me by passed time
Or because you're in your prime.

You could learn a lot from me
About who or what not to be,
Life could be easier for you
And those heartaches few.

About love and life you can learn
And what makes our World turn,
Just listen for your own sake
And avoid life's little mistakes.

Though you are young and bolder
You can learn from someone older,
It's because I'm old and gray
You should listen to what I say.

There are many pitfalls in life
And wrong doors open to strife,
As a sage I can help you through,
Good advice I offer you.

My sands of time have shifted
But with knowledge I am gifted,
When I speak you should pause,
Listen and learn, Just because.
