Not Who They 'Use' To Be - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
The only ones fearing to leave a phase of life lived,
To move on and accept that which 'is'...
Are the ones disbelieving those who have aged and matured...
Have done it without a thought of doing it to offend.
Since all that is granted and blessed with life to live,
Must experience each step of it...
Regardless if many find this to regret.
With more than just a few attempting to reject the aging process.
'They are not who they 'use' to be.
I remember years ago they were different people.'
~And I remember being in elementary school.
Some of the 'kids' I knew are STILL there.~
I can respect that.
At least they are down to Earth.
Some people have changed so much,
I don't know who they are anymore.'
There is 'something' adult about them now.
Grown, accountable and responsible people.
Believe it or not,
I t happens.~
