week 493 ~ the ignominy of aging

with 2 comments

the ignominy of aging
falls heavily in active mode
we fall squint our bodies implode
as decades pass no point raging
regret’s for naught we’re engaging
with falling apart nonfiction
trumps wisdom earned hope’s eviction
brings lessons sadly learned too late
damage done just courage and fate
left to assuage youth addiction

week 397 ~ what we can’t give them poised here

with 2 comments

me.397what we can’t give them poised here
at this moment of ending
the one thing that makes it clear

to choose from all we hold dear
what matters most partings bring
what we can’t give them poised here

the strength to go beyond fear
find something worth defending
the one thing that makes it clear

that all will be well to steer
their ship wisely wing on wing
what we can’t give them poised here

life’s true path don’t interfere
when they are flung resisting
the one thing that makes it clear

for someday it will appear
suddenly like love or spring
what we can’t give them poised here
the one thing that makes it clear
