Philosophy On Youth And Old Age

Life bears its pain with a howl,
stubborn pride laying in tow
Yet living is always for the now
(Youthful pride sings out to play and show)!

Looking back, regrets eats out so many hearts
Vicious circle of good and bad repeats
A thousand sworn restarts,
Long sleepless nights in soiled sheets!

Weeping at follies thought to be great,
times remembered for nothing but vain pleasures
Of sad meals happily ate,
Sins glorified , thought to be great treasures!

Morns promising love and joy with rising sun
the day dragging along dead acts
Darkness rising in glee not to be undone
Lies enlarged and arrogantly claimed as facts!

Seasons remembered as holidays on ice
cool winds sailing a pleasure ship
Too busy racing to ever be gentle and nice
All one long self pleasuring trip!

Life bears its pain with a howl,
stubborn pride laying in tow
Yet living is always for the now
Old age and time brings one to finally know!

Time is a Light that shines to reveal
the gross mistakes of we so wild
That in our ever racing youthful zeal
we act as stubborn and crazy child

Light shines with its purposeful goal
to teach us to be meek and mild
Lessons blessedly given to stir our soul
so our lives will not be so defiled....

Time Is An Eternal Book

Time is an eternal book with covers so worn
it embraces us even before we are born
Pages may be long and very deeply stained
sadly in this life so much is unexplained!

There are pictures of our infamous deeds
proof our our fruits and barbaric seeds
Times we refuse to help those in dire need
They were bountiful crops, we were the weed!

Yet recorded also our moments of victories
times we gave of ourselves and loved others
Life recorded complete with its mysteries
How nothing beats the love of our mothers!

Near the end we may see the spilt ink so bad
Yet know its too late and our future is sad!
