As pass the years of doing this and that,
Oft driven by obsessive need to please
Unruly passions, ending in regret,
Mere mortals, so the lord of life decrees,
Need not be caught up in the rodent race,
Learn lesson that appears in elder age,
To hasten slowly at a measured pace,
Receding strength of talents to engage;
Too often, much too late, we soldier on,
Ignoring counsel of the inner voice,
Until affliction’s dissonance is born,
Rendering our pride with little or no choice.
Humility our shortcomings to see,
Enables graceful future well to be.

To Those Who Lose Out,
Court Not Despair,
What Shall Be,
Oft Times Unwise,
Fate May Not Concur!

Lubricates appetites for Good Living!
P.S. Been a pleasure to participate in A to Z.
I shall be away for next week….Leaving in the morning…back next Sunday evening…
See you Monday, 9th May.

Tomorrow is the same as Yesterday,
Save for the ‘How’ in which we live Today,
Each minute of the Now,
Our choices do allow,
Although the unpredictable holds sway!
