When You’re Nearing Eighty 2012/2013

When One Is Nearing Eighty

 

New, strange openings

Among the closings.

Eccentricity;

Approval and esteem.

Fear of death, but loss of fear –

Ever nearing understanding of the dying

And accepting.

Few opinions, no opinion –

All opinions having worth;

Judgment gone.

It’s all one wealth.

You, in short are leaving earth

Relatively soon

Leaving earth to earthlings

And their generation.

Still, you’re far from free-complete.

Even you know that.

And hoping that you’ll live to conquer

Every trait that keeps you back

From fullness.

Birth, Death & In Between II; Circling Round Reality;

I Is Always We Is You;
