Retired

Retirement is an interesting term often used for people when they are older

Enlisting in new adventures can be fun and educational as well as uncomfortable

Taking each day as it comes helps when you have the luxury of such a treat

Instead many retirees are facing less than plentiful resources and need stimuli

Restlessness may come about when someone has less to live on than a dollar

Enrolling in programs is challenging and it matters to have help to console

Despite attempts to act as if all is well it is important to find means to the end

…..

This is a double acrostic, meaning the beginning and ended of each line is of the same letter. The read down view on either end is “retired” also the name of the poem, not that it has to be for any “rules.”

This is in response to the poetry prompt for this day #9 of National Poetry Month. You can see the prompt HERE
