Older and Wiser

2 Apr 2021

None of us wants to grow older

we are also encouraged to

expect youthfulness

and vigour, turning a

blind eye to disability

Loss, grief and age.

As I grow older

may I acquire wisdom.

Compassion, empathy, understanding

respect and acceptance

have often been neglected

or shunned exposing

vulnerability and weakness.

However, these qualities

are the markers of insight

and sagacity.

As I get older

I hope to acquire wisdom.

Growing old is frequently

accompanied with loss, disability

disconnection and powerlessness,

a deep sense of isolation.

Wisdom is part of accepting

the changes we encounter

with courage, knowing

when to ask for help.

As I get older

may I grow wiser.
