Be Your Own Self - Poem by Terence George Craddock (Spectral Images and Images Of Light)

your not experienced
enough to work
to be your own self

but you are also too old
to depend on multiple others
this will vary throughout life

welcome to transition
to active adulthood
later decades will await
phantom old age transition

aging health issues
loss of loved ones
changing circumstances

dice are rolling cast
opportunities are stacked
leap off point arrives

    seasons pass, we grow... and are the product of what we've seen and heard... tempered by individual desire! (Report) Reply
