Talents Of Old People - Poem by Praneetha Perera

When you are old
your talents and skills are not recognized
Even if you show your colours
As the young ones do

This is the pattern of the world
No one can change it
That is the destiny of the old
The answer to this problem is
You have to change yourself
Without getting your
Feelings hurt
Because you cannot
Change the world
And you find discrimination
All over the world

    hi, I created a similar one, using most of your words.
    feel free to comment,
    tks,

    When you are old and mature
    Your talents and skills wanted no more
    Even when you show your colours
    As the young ones do to others

    This is the pattern of the world
    That is the destiny of the old
    No one can need try change it

    The answer to this problem is
    Try and change yourself first
    Let not your feelings get worse

    Accept the clocks ticking around
    Discrimination will always be found
    No one can change the way of the world (Report) Reply
