Where Truth Lies

Updated on April 30, 2015

When I contemplate how my life has been spent

Memory condenses the fore time my soul underwent

The unfamiliar destines, the gratification and the strife

All are story lines of my memoirs, paragraphs in my life

Souvenirs and keepsakes on the mantelpiece of my mind

Displayed within my eyes and on my face defined

When age and time in hand accrue

When crimps and lines creep up on you

Is there respeculation of your life worth ?

Do the old keep wish to return to birth ?

I'll ponder the significance of my life until my final destination

At flesh's end I prospect to secure the truth of expectation.

      Interesting and touching to read. You still have a lot of living to do though and I hope it's beautiful. :-)

      We realize the value of life only when we are at the end of it. Too true. Thanks for giving me food for thought this morning!
