Grandma complains.

Cheltenham Art Gallery & Museum; Supplied by The Public Catalogue Foundation

Grandma complains

about the things shes never done

about the pains she feels

throughout her body

about being old.

But we don’t listen

’cause she’s old

and that’s what old people do,

they complain.

But what if

our time comes

and we’re grandmas and grandpas

and we’re complaining

about the things we’ve done

and the pains we feel

throughout our bodies

about being old?

And no one listens

cause we’re old

and that’s what old people do

    1. Thank you!! I don’t know why it saddens me so much…I got the inspiration from book I’m reading…In the book, the writer refers to ‘Intimations of mortality brought on by aging family members’… Maybe that’s it.. Maybe we see our aging, fragile family members and it reminds us of our own future ahead of us…
