She's a little over eighty,
Wears heels high and pointy,
and stands tall, joyful and strong,
even when they say she's wrong.
She's beautiful by the way.
She's more so with hair grey.
Her ageless steel toughness,
Keeps in tune with gingerliness.
They wince while she prances,
And run when she dances.
They've the right to be scared,
But none to say she has erred.
When her Maker keeps her fit,
The last thing she'll do is quit.
There's no better way to live,
than to take the good life gives.
She turns a hundred and weak.
Now sits in her chair and peeks
At her grandchildren find their fit
And smiles as recollection permits
“Are you alright?” James asked while sitting close to his darling.
“Do I look alright to you?” She moved away from him.
“Is it wrong to show I care?” He moved closer.
“Were you suppose to ask questions you already know the answers to?” He looked surprised.
“What do you think I should’ve said instead?”
Tone high and firm
“Why do you always want me to put words in your mouth?” she stood up and vibrated. The kids rushed to the closed door and listened, surprised at the new development.
“Why have you turned this difficult Grace?” He stood and walked closer to her.
“Have you ever thought you might be the one reason why life’s so miserable for me and why I’m ‘this difficult?” The kids gasped.
“What did you just say to me?”
“What did you hear me say?”
“Would you please repeat your second to the last question?” James moved menacingly towards her.
“Will you answer the question if I repeated it, or hit me?”
The kids glared, eyes wide.
“Why are you looking at me that way?” James asked.
“What way am I looking at you and what did see me with? Mouth?”
“What’s that in your eye? Anger? Hate?” He asked almost giving in.
“What do you think it is?”
“What are you…a hawk? .…a tiger or something?”
“Which one do you chose to call me?”
Silence and smiles.
“Where’s everyone?” He asked surrendering.
“Ain’t you breaking the rule of the game? Don’t you know you’re not allowed to change the topic?” Grace asked still strong and ready?.
“Okay, I give in. You won!”
“Yeeeeeeeah! Again! I won! Ten times in a row! I’m on a roll!!” She said jumping up and down like a child.
“Awesome. Now, give yourself a loud applause.” James said and they both laughed andclapped and the kids couldn’t believe their ears.
Did you know that play can reduce stress in adults?
Get a little childish play daily.
Just a little will do.😆
