TAKING CHALLENGE 18

-------------------------------------------------------------------
...AND WHEN WE ARE OLD


an ancient proverb
from across the atlantic
long before the
middle passage
tells us
it takes a village to
raise a child
meaning
we must all pull
together through thick
and thin through rain                  
and raging storms to
raise our children
in the way
they should go
so when we become
advanced in age and
grow from son to
father to grandfather when
the color of our hair
changes like the seasons
from black to silver to white
we can rest assured
of living out our
life in peace
