Most folks understand that they are not who people think they are.
They know that even though Joe at the gas station considers
them to be an idiot it’s really Old Joe who is the moron,
not them. And just because their kids think the ways
of their parents are old and corny don’t mean they
are outdated or even wrong it simply illuminates
the fact that despite constant pressure and even
battering from others we can effortlessly persist being who we are.
Thank you, friend.
