Somewhere in between I exist
One could easily have me missed
People might find me loathsome
For many years this is how I became
Especially with my dreadful birthmark
Which became my very own trademark

I used to have auburn hair, now mostly grey
My hands across my broad shoulders splayed
Those beard, they were never there before
And they would tell you how loud I snore
I could be like the mighty Acanthus – thorny
And surviving in this tumultuous world

But as more time elapsed, my odds of being
Would grow progressively slim
I now speak in a very business-like tone
The sudden flare of anger gone from my voice
This is a strange and unaccountable fact
But I still say the occasional acidic comments

    I can see every line etched in the face of the man in the photo. (I’ve yet to do that prompt).
    I do think that many of our elders feel this way. You used the wordle list very well.
    Thanks for stopping by my post on the wordle prompt.

    Thanks so much for responding so very well to the photo prompt 😀

    I think your piece makes great use of the wordle in combination with the photo (although that is a scheduling mishap – a day early! oh well 😉 )

    “I could be like the mighty Acanthus – thorny”

    Acanthus = common name = Bear’s Breach – and this image portrays a man who has a certain presence and quality that I think resounds so well in your lines.

    Thanks again for being inspired and sharing 🙂

    Cheers
    Pat
