2. The Old One

The old one was child-like in form as in mind

Sometimes scared, sometimes selfish but at most times kind

The old one knew of the hardships awaiting those treading his path

His wary heart understood as his own burdens weighed down on his staff

Compassion flickered through his eyes as he watched children become men

"We go through life seeing a moment of sorrow as equal one of joy times ten

A hurt stings a thousand times more than a laugh

Heartbreaks cannot be washed away with a long hot bath"

But the old one had nothing to regret, no complaints to file

Throughout his life, he had always found pleasure in a smile
