Older and Wiser

Go down

Older and Wiser  Empty Older and Wiser

Post  mikeschultz on Mon May 20 2013, 16:39

The universal human experience of growing older
Feels as if it were a subjective force,
You perhaps, me for certain, I know, I see it all around,
As time slowly grinds it all to dust to refill the hour glass.

Stone Hedge is fallen down, grass grows on Golgotha,
Religious symbols stand by will alone, God’s will, or man’s
Willful need to be reassured that we are not alone
In the vastness of space

With our experiential existences and transcendental hopes.
We strive each day to make a living out of life,
To make something to sell, or to barter our time by the hour,
A part of our lives sold for a handful of dollars.

Older is measurable, but wiser, that’s a more subjective
Consideration, one on which I am scarcely objective.
