Now Grown

Now grown; from birth I never knew
what to expect, what would ensue
as each year passed. There was no guide
on steps to take until one died.
Yet, somehow, I have made it through

my life of seventy plus two
but still, unsure. What must I do
to know my best has been applied
now grown?

Shall I, with words and deeds, imbue
a testament of what is true
or actions which must be applied
each day? I’ll just let you decide
if I have touched hearts of a few,
now grown.

When power leads man toward arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the areas of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of his existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

Ah, Larry, there is so much correspondence between your sentiment and mine...

but alas, words about what I might have left for the word to reflect on similarly sound but so differently be:


Now groan...

Hi Daniel,

Hope things are going well with your bum knee. Just wanted to make sure that your post was a self-recrimination "groan" and has nothing to do with the subject of the poem.

Have a wonderful "day" at home with your family for Christmas. Candles still burning!

Larry
