Get Rid Of The Advertisements

THE JOURNEY
 
I trudge on
more slowly now
keeping pace with the tortoise
my sack of sorrows
heavier now
nature misbehaves
mankind knows no better
time for reflection

so many steps
another stage completed
dropping the markers
measured in years
77 & 2013
one more candle & fireworks galore
leaving behind traces for posterity
my sack of hopes and promises
much lighter now
time for repletion

a New Year beckons
its bells ringing
what is it yearning for
it's looking forward time

a pause on this journey
time to meditate
give an accounting
breathe the silence
you know the feeling I am sure ––
the hope of finding yourself and others
better off than before

the past is an answer not worth pursuing
a mirror for wishful sightseeing
the future's a marker our hearts are prepaying
a promise there's no guaranteeing*


a new year a new stage
perhaps we'll meet along the way
exchange our sacks of promises
make it a better day

*quote from Pentatina for Five Vowels by Campbell McGrath
