Cruel Age

Age can be a cruel thing
stealing life from people,
making it impossible to enjoy
what use to be so simple.
Daily functions become a challenge,
Sometimes just not possible.
Age can be so sad
watching what happens to us.
So many souls
waiting for joy to return,
even if it’s just in being mobile
or able to speak a word.
God bless the souls who seek
life, joy, and peace.
Protect them from abuse
and a selfish world indeed.
