Inspired by “A Peculiar Walk”

By David Smith November 9, 2016

 

Very mechanical as he walks with his cane

Like an arm on a steam engine, rotates now and again

One hand on the cane and the other takes off

Every step, the elbow breaks into a trot

It’s so mechanical as he chugs along

Walking the sidewalk, like a steam engine, he’s gone

His walk so peculiar, I think of his age

His experiences in life

His perseverance to engage

How he can adapt and walk on his own

As he carries a cane and not a cell phone

To learn from the elderly they adapt and they cope

Their experiences in life may seem remote

But they have lived and continue to shine

Their experiences in life let them share their time

So when I see a peculiar walk

They’ve got the maturity to have their talk
