Essence Of Life

Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

The essence of life,
And its effervesence to experience.
Has more to do with it to adventure.
With a doing to explore.
The lows the highs.
The ups and downs.
Done to grow.
Beyond things obtained.
Maintained but not kept...
From becoming rusted to dust.

Yet memories to get them,
Seem to reminisce as if...
To remain and linger. Timeless!
Without impressions to make.
Or find the doing imitated.
This blessing to receive,
Is a personal endeavor.
By one who blooms,
From each stage of life...
Not to resent but appreciate aging!
