Conventional Shoulders


Contrary to conventional wisdom
Wisdom is seldom conventional
If anything wisdom is hard earned
Trust me I earned my wrinkles
White hair and bent back
And definitely not by being conventional
The results however is patience
Patience with those that try me
By pounding their youthful exuberance
On my tired conventional shoulders

    A beautiful way to deal with their 'youthful exuberance'! (Report) Reply

The hour yet bears for thee and me
