When you’re a baby
people fawn over you

When you’re a few years older
you become hard to handle

When you’re in your teens
you become difficult to understand

When you’re older you’re
expected to be a superhero

But when you’re old
you become a burden to all around you

No one wants to know
No one cares

You are left alone with
your thoughts and tears…
