  • Nobody Listens


    Now that I’m sixty,
    Nobody listens.
    I start to talk,
    They start to text,
    Tap their foot,
    Turn away.
    Without really listening,
    They think I babble.
    Did I lose my relevance
    With my girlish figure—
    Or worse,
    My mind?
    Of course not.
    My opinions are incisive
    Honed from decades of reflection
    About what really matters.
    Well, I matter,
    And so do my thoughts.
    I shall write poetry,
    A succinct art,
    For I have things to say.

    Bravo! The 60 th decade well represented! The only thing that matters in this life is our perception of who we are and where we've been. Keep writing debbiepope!
