Homo Sapiens Poem by valentin savin

Homo Sapiens

Rating: 5.0

(A man reasonable)

The old body weather fears,
The soul falls in decay.
Guilty are the years,
That refuse to stay.

The soul ages with the body
While ending its living span.
Life is amazing and Godly.
Hold onto your life, man!

You'll be buried when you part.
Perhaps recalled someday.
Or driven out of the heart.
You can't regain the past anyway.

You were born the perfect kind
And you must live and strife.
The Lord gave you spirit and mind.
Save them till the end of life!

Ha! Val, i have the same suggestion now, as i did in 2019, about this line; 'And you must live and strife.' But on the 'new' PH, there seems to be no way to edit the poem. : ( bri : )

2 – " And you must live and strife." how about " live and strive" or " live with strife" ? ? i like this quite a bit. to MyPoemList. could the memory of you, Val, ever be driven out of someone's heart? not mine! ! Bri :)

***** Val, my 'long-lost' friend. 'And you must live and strife.' You'll lose a fine rhyme, BUT 'strife', I say, should be 'strive'. I hope you and Kira? are well, or your bodies are resting well. ;) bri

Brian, my friend, what happened to you? You're completely lost. You don't show up on Yahoo. Write me something or are you forbidden to write to me? ! It's impossible to write here, it's all advertising. I had to remove the ad blocker. I won't set foot here again. Sorry.
