in his youthful day's

he used to wonder what he would look like

when he became as old as he is now


the images that the wondering 

put in his young mind then

really used to make him laugh


but that was then


if only he could laugh at them now

instead if crying

◄ facing up to me

to the hosts of wisdom's past ►

it's more than relateable Rose, in fact, you could be describing us! (great use of simple words)

I find the simplicity of this endearing Rose. You have hit on a truth, obvious in a way but there's a lot of sincerity in it and I find that appealing.!

considering how relatable this poem is Rose I'm amazed it didn't 'fly off the shelves' so to speak? it certainly hit home with me for one that's for sure!
