Old Oak

Old Oak (18-098Z)

Fragileness in motion
Each movement calculated
Aware of handholds
Balance unstable

Once rock steady
No longer rooted
Now ankles sway
Easily uprooted

Begrudgingly submit
Walker steadies
What once came easy
Now exhausting

Thin dry skin
Humbly accepts help
Help humbly given
Navigate new roles

Rub lotion on
Seasoned bark
An old oak
No longer bends
