Beauty of Old Age Rewards
Wisdom, is realising you know nothing,
everything is not like it used to be,
listen, closely, what others are saying.
Depression, try laughter it’s guaranteed
avoid stress try learning to live carefree.
Don’t try pleasing everyone, please yourself,
forget all the bad things and pride oneself.
True, sad heart will repair if you let it,
hold to your dreams, don’t live life on a shelf.
Wisdom is, learn to laugh not throw a fit.
