e-Paper Poetry of Vinx

Save me from my friends

I hear people say,
I have an old head
On a young shoulder
But the said wisdom
Came from people’s tales…

And in all it said,
Though time might have past,
Save me from my friends…
The more things change
The more they stay same.

    We have another saying for this in the southern part of the US. “He is an old soul.” Ultimately I think here anyway it means you seem wiser than your years and often as in my case it was due to hardship at a young age. Interesting post makes one think about many things my friend. Love to you and your family. Joni

      By that line “an old head on a youngster shoulder” I mean wiser than actual age.

      And yes, personal experience indeed can make one wiser.

      Thank you Joni, hope the pandemic didn’t affect you much.

        Hi my friend, yes the meaning is the same. When I was sixteen people called me a wise old soul. The south is in lockdown for now even a University just closed with the exception of athletes. Not sure I get that but we only go out for food or to drive around occasionally but mask are required in public. We know people who have been sick with COVID and also have friends with loved ones who have died with the virus. We are doing well. I worry about older people who live alone the most. My best friend just lost a dear friend to suicide who was alone. Everyone who has someone who is kind and loving is blessed right now. Thank you for asking my friend. I hope all is well with your family. Love, prayers and hugs. Joni
