I Got A Grandmother - Poem by Steven Adelman

I got a grandmother
She’s almost 98 yrs old
& the one thing she told
Me was
In order to get old-
You gotta be brave.

But I thought its not the dying I’m scared of

It’s the old age itself

To shit your pants
And have some one wash you everyday

All just so that they themselves
Can see where we’re all headed

But I have a fear of being where that is
