This poem is heart breaking and so true and real :"The reason that they never show
and listen to the things I know;
They live their lives most virtually,
and that excludes old folk, like me." Thank you for sharing and good luck with your writings.

Now doesn't that sound familiar, the young people are too involved in themselves. I believe that it's partly our fault in the way we brought up their parents. Who may realise this when they grow old themselves.
An easy read and well composed poem. ~Mel~

Nice poem, I enjoyed reading it. I think you might find when you were young you weren't interested in talking too much to old folk either. I wasn't anyway. Is this just maybe part of the human condition? I'm middle aged and I notice the difference with my nephews and nieces even. And curiosity grows with age too I find. Thanks for sharing this and have a great day

Technology has arrived. I wonder what technology will be like when the kids get old and experience what you have. Being lonely wanting to pass on some wisdom, sighs ... how does it get better than that. xoxo Kiwi

This is an upbeat poem to remind the younger folks to give a thought to their elders. The rhymes are working well and the piece has a lilt to it.
Thanks for sharing.

Younger kidsto day are not interested in anything but those phones, I agree. It is a same because they are missing so much beauty and knowledge around them.

I do like this [oem, especially the line about the cell phones. The only thing I would change iis not having 4 EE rhymes in a row. You have a good rhyming pattern, but that kind of makes it sound a bit off. Other than that, this is a great poem.

Your poem is really well-written, moving, and SO timely. I have been in restaurants and other places where entire families were messing with their cell phones. It's really very sad!

If I lived near you, I would visit. I believe in your theme, the young should spend time with seniors to be a part of their lives. Excellent lesson in your poem that has meaning and wisdom, many should read your words.
