Poem on Keeping Brain in Shape

Brain Work

Expectations set for a Child

Influences, whether harsh or mild.

For me, low hurdles were set.

Acting dumb. . . expectations met.

Brain became lazy, ‘til one day

Concentration was left at bay.

Tired of ridicule as stupid.

Others saw not, me as I did.

Determined to prove myself smart.

A change in actions I did start.

Studying hard, but persevered.

Concentrate on concentrating I steered.

Today I know a thing or two.

Brains can get flabby like muscles do.

If exercise body and brain

Signs of old age will help refrain.
