Mere Human Being
>> View all 318
Dashing from place to place,
Running around accomplishing,
Insignificant tasks and errands,
That need to be done fervently,
And life passes just like that,
Tomorrow offspring ought not remember,
Hardships faced by parents,
When they had been done,
Amongst the difficulty,
Just for them- the young ones,
And in return, When they grow up,
They need not remember the elderly,
But run off living selfish lives,
Of outloud individuality,
Leaving others feeling woe with pity,
And just sorry!

|Oh my Esra...you speak the truth here....our elderly are so neglected...I admire so much other countries like China who hold their elders in high esteem..and how sinfull that selfish children reap all the rewards from the parents only to abandon them later on in life...wonderful writing....floria|
