What has Become of Me.

What has Become of Me.

A Poem by Ellie Howard

 

Oh, old man.

Please open your eyes to

See so much of what you

have missed.


Old man… please take a

Good look at my life;

The childhood grown from a seed

In your absence.


Oh, if only you could

Tangibly see all the pain

And welfare you had

Done upon me.

You would understand now,

Through your aged and withering eyes

What made you leave all those things

Behind.


Oh, old man,

Please open up your eyes

And realize,

How I turned out just like you.

Now I am an aged man

Because of this,

An old man to my son,

An old man to his youth,

Blinded,

Just as you.

The poem is very good. I had to read again. Funny how we can fall on the same path of our elders. I like the description and the final statement.
"Because of this,
And old man to my son,
Blinded,
Just as you."
Thank you for the outstanding poetry.

Very powerful and honest write. Sometimes we become the one that we have fought our whole lives not to be.. Crazy how it happens that way..x
