GIVE IT A THOUGHT!

Today I am sharing the poem below with all of us after watching a young lady who has to take care of her crying baby and at the same time accompany a very sick elderly lady (mother or mother-in-law) to a clinic.

Observing how she has to cope with the situation, the verses come to mind. I cannot think of an appropriate title:

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE

Baby,

Helpless infant,

Dependent on others;

Uses smiles and cries,

To express all its needs;

The elderly whines, moans and cries,

To demand attention from others

Often meeting deaf ears,

Eyes not see;

Unwanted garbage,

Abandon!
