A look inside the hearts and minds of the elderly as they struggle to hold fast and persevere through the last stages of their lives. My inspiration is the wonderful residents i work with at my Nursing Home. I feel their pain, and share the struggle, in this poem, "Old Age: The Final Page".
I have been with the same guy for over a year and we have reached the point of the relationship that he thinks it's okay not to talk to me. I have recently dealt with some depression problems and with him not talking to me, really makes life hard.
It's about two lovers who cross a couple of slave traders and the boy goes to save a little girl but ends up getting killed. The older girl has to make a choice rather to accept it or hold it forever and let it destroy her.
