Tuesday Poem and Gratitude List
Fiḍál (Grace), 12 Bahá (Splendor) 177 B.E. Tuesday, March 31, 2020

I Am An Elder1

Do not call me elderly:
I am an elder!

An Elder,
with sixty plus years of wisdom
acquired through surviving
in a materialistic society
that values youth and beauty
more than age and wisdom.

Do not dismiss me
or my ideas
with "OK Boomer!"
show a little respect
and listen to what I have to say;
even if you don't take my advice,
you may hear something interesting
about history and elder wisdom.
