Those Lines - Poem by Sandra Feldman

The lines of age,
They fill the page,
Of every simple life,
In them we read,
Kindness or greed,
The story of those lives.

It pays to live a decent life,
Before the end arrives,
Do good, never do bad,
And then those lines
That old age brings,
Won't make you all that sad.

    This is a poem about consequences. Kelly expressed below the most favorable situation because smiles etched his facial lines. In contrast, someone else might have to acknowledge frowns etched his or her face. Whatever it is a record of their life on earth. As you say it pays to be good person, the reward is a sense of content and peace with self. And it's never too late! (Report) Reply

    Most of my lines were earned with smiles, so I don't mind them at all.: -) (Report) Reply

    Totally awesome poem, loved reading it! Brings to mind the truth that we poets write throughout life, it pays to live a decent life before the end arrives, I believe applies to our writing also. Thank you for making me think, Sandra. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
