Life…speaking…

What say you..tender babe

babbling on with a new voice

gurgling in happy wonder..

What say you..child

chattering through innocent eyes

of a world seen as fairy tales

living dreams of possibilities..

What say you..youth

boasting in belligerent ignorance

of reality from eyes as yet untried..

What say you..adult

exploring this time of prime

reflecting on lessons

at last coming to sense..

What say you..aged one

old worn eyes viewing youth

knowing its waste on the young

wisdom hard won

existing in a fragile state..

What say you..of a life
