Who am I

I gave you life
You assassinated me

I held you close
You pushed me away

I clothed you
My garments were too antiquated for you

I fed you
You preferred the world’s table

I protected you
You thought it chains

I sought to bring happiness to you
And yet, I only earned disgust

I gave you education
My teaching was dull to you
I give you love eternal
You forsake it for short-lived infatuation

My head is gray
my skin is furrowed
Sage is my counsel
You discard my wisdom
for vain speech delivered by  fools wearing
white robes tattered by rapid costume changes

My love is eternal, though my chastisement will wait no more

Who am I? We both know who I AM
