Day 20 in the #NaPoWriMo Challenge

IMG_0607

Day 20’s optional prompt, was to write a poem that states about the things you know

For example, “The sky is blue” or “Pizza is my favorite food”… Each line can be a separate statement, or you can run them together. The things you “know” of course, might be facts, or they might be a little bit more like beliefs.  ~ via The NaPoWriMo Website

 

So with “Day 20’s Prompt” I have chosen a Poem by Famous Poet ~ Maya Angelou and then after that is my interpretation to the Challenge using today’s prompt! 

Happy reading and hope you all enjoy!

ALONE

Lying, thinking
Last night
How to find my soul a home
Where water is not thirsty
And bread loaf is not stone
I came up with one thing
And I don’t believe I’m wrong
That nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

There are some millionaires
With money they can’t use
Their wives run round like banshees
Their children sing the blues
They’ve got expensive doctors
To cure their hearts of stone.
But nobody
No, nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Now if you listen closely
I’ll tell you what I know
Storm clouds are gathering
The wind is gonna blow
The race of man is suffering
And I can hear the moan,
‘Cause nobody,
But nobody
Can make it out here alone.

Alone, all alone
Nobody, but nobody
Can make it out here alone.

By Maya Angelou (1928-2014)

CARING FOR THE ELDERLY
 .
It doesn’t take but a moment
To stop and listen
Give a smile
Hold a hand
Or a hug when needed…
 .
One day we may be where they are now
“In their shoes”
So I always try to think of that
If I was them, how would I be feeling
And it seems to work every time…
 .
Instantly calming one that is scared
Lost or confused
Some try to tell me that I have a magic touch
But I reply “No”
I purely just treat them how I would like to be treated!
