Zeus

Zeus

A Poem by Emily Feret
"

I was thinking a lot about elders who deserve respect and how that is very true but it's really only true if they respect you too. It should be mutual.. Always expect respect but only if you give it.

"

Zeus

 

You stand frail

But still trying to lift boulders to remind yourself you once could,

Refusing help as your worn out body fails you again

 

You sit high on your throne that you built yourself

Touching clouds

Zeus in your own mind

 

Judging those below you even though you once stood in their shoes

Dug their ditches

 

Age does now always deserve respect

When respect is demanded and not returned

 

Even the mightiest fall

And you will too

And you will meet God with the realization that you are not one

 

He will not shake your hand even though you will reach out

You will be expected to bow
