Welcome to Short Poems For Senior Citizens written by me. The Short Poems are written to celebrate World Senior Citizens Day that falls on 21st August every year. The poems highlight the importance and value of the senior people. Their rich experience and their specialization can be of much use to the society. For this occasion I have written three poems with the following titles……
- Short Poem Glitter Like Gold
- Short Poem Golden Age Reality
- Short Poem Like A He- Man
These Short Poems On Senior Citizens are very dear to me, because I have also attained senior citizenship from 11th April 2021.
You all know that World Senior citizens day is dedicated to people of age above60. The senior people face various health issues due to aging process.
The problems of senior people are highlighted at International level on this day. This day is utilized to create awareness among the people.
This also acts as a reminder to the Government about senior citizens to take care and help them to lead a better life in old age too.
Many issues of senior people like– mental health issues, physical health issues, abuse to elders and other issues are discussed and initiatives are taken to address throughout the world.
Short Poems For Senior Citizens are written to understand them and to encourage them to give back to the society in general and to the younger generation in particular, the rich knowledge and experience that they have gathered.
Yes- my contribution through short poems, may be insignificant, still I request you to read and give your valuable comments and suggestions.
NOW enjoy the poems with different titles….
SHORT POEM GLITTER LIKE GOLD
Old man should never think and feel himself to be very old
If he thinks so, others may think him to be very very old.
Physically one may be old
Mentally, never should be old
Remember…”Old is Gold”
In the old age too
Old should glitter like gold
Old should glitter like gold.
SHORT POEM GOLDEN AGE REALITY
After retirement just at sixty
You qualify to be a senior citizen.
Behave like a real senior, cool and calm
Feel proud but never be haughty.
Think…really think please…
Does this qualify you to be more responsible and more decent
Does this signify that you have to be more dependent.
Hey! Its true, no where you will find
Junior citizens under you
You have to build your junior citizens to willingly help you.
Hey! old man, be sensible, be practical
You are alone in the final journey of your life
It will be more lonely
If you don’t have your wife with you.
But, there can be no solution
If you worry, worry and worry
Be strong, face it boldly
These are the golden age reality
No way out, better to coolly enjoy it
Coolly face it.
Please bear in mind…
Your children and grand children
Will be busy to build their life
How can they spare their time?
Hey! Old man, you have proved your worth
You have proved your tenacity
You can carry on … in the last innings
Be a winner in the golden innings
Yeah-find out some new activity
Related to your age and seniority
Give coaching or be a mentor
Provided you get some taker or listener!
Extract the best from your
Rich experience and share
Share it with full care.
Yeah-be busy with your new activity
Related to your specialization and seniority
Please don’t fall pray to
Any type of mental morbidity
Certainly-golden age has just started
You are at sixty or sixty plus
At this age too you can dream
Dream to be plus, plus and plus
Plus in learning new thing, acquiring new skill
Always feel happy
Be bold enough to carry yourself
God help those who help themselves.
SHORT POEM LIKE A HE-MAN
I knew I will get old
Retire from services
Become senior citizen one day
Yeah-the day came
On 11th April 2021, I was declared a senior citizen.
I am not able to enjoy my new freedom
My golden days, my second innings
Has come to a halt.
The dampener, the villain is COVID-19
It has taken the shape of epidemic
All people are in panic
For personal safety and well being
It has forced to maintain social distance
Wearing of mask is compulsory
Many other restrictions are there for one and all
Many feel unhappy and very very sorry
This is the harsh reality
Let me face it boldly
Like a senior citizen cum senior man
With many experiences good and bad
Ready to fight COVID-19, corona
Certainly defeat this COVID-19,corona- “like a he- man”
To conclude, it can very well be said that” old people are not old, they are the gold”. Hope you enjoyed the the short poems for senior citizens. Senior citizens in their golden years are the treasure for our society. They are the experienced people. They have seen the reality of life, they have seen the world. They are also a link of past, present and future.
Senior citizens are the senior member of the family. They know better about the religion, tradition, family history and prevalent customary practices. Also they posses better understanding of values of society and family. They pass on these societal knowledge and family values to the new or upcoming generation. These are the practice going on from generation to generation. And this is very much seen in Indian context.
Now please think over… can we or should we neglect our senior citizens? Can we not spare some time for them? Can we not allow our children and their grand children to play with them and listen some stories.
Let us love them. Let us take care of their health and happiness to get many things in return from them. Let them live a satisfied and peaceful life each day.
