About a journey

I wrote about a journey
I started way back when
the words that found their way
to the pages from my pen
were from an adolescent
who hadn’t yet found life
yet wrote as though he knew it all
through torment, angst and strife

But as the years have passed
and my poetry has grown
those words have mellowed somewhat
as my publishings have shown
For now a sixty something
I have seen a life and lived
And used my words to capture that
as living is a gift

    Great sentiment, Jem. Every teenager I’ve known – myself included, more than a half-century ago – has been blessed (or cursed) with total certainty on most of life’s absolutes. The only way to maintain this state and not have it eroded by life is to become a politician.
