Treasure Island

RoseAnn V. Shawiak

(October 6,1950 / New Jersey)

Getting Old


Standing in the midst of nature's beauty, arms outstretched,
body decaying, getting old.

Waiting forlornly for someone to approach and give a hug,
wishing to be recognized as a living entity, to be held and
cuddled like a small child.

There is no wrong to be found within an aging heart, only
good wanting to be touched and shared.

By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
