NEGLECTED ELDERS

Never did they Lie
Explain they always  did
Great souls of wisdom
Languishing  in  lonely life
Eschewing their past moments
Caring for little kids
Trying to spend time
Eagerly needing the affection
Daring death  to  come



Enormous is their contribution
Lasting for everlasting time
Diligently carved for generations
Enshrined in their tales
Religiously shared with  children
Save them from neglect
For Acrosticonly

    You pictured elders in a very positive way! Let us care for them so that our kids will also do the same way!

    Am almost there....:))

    Thanks. Glad you liked it. Hey you haven't seen the rest of my posts!There are many Acrostics.

    That is one tradition that I like about us Indians...but the fast lifestyle has eroded it to a large extend...the fall of the joint family has hit this section of the family the most.

    Hello Sarasji
    yes not seen before, but now am reading your acrostics....I really like the way you put words....One friend has been asking me to try it out....
    good day

    How very true indeed! You put a universal touch to this issue Saras. It seems that even in old traditions, where Elders used to be highly respected, has fallen prey to this problem. As an elder, I see the truth of what you say in my daily life.
