Hide and Seek

Itís funny how the mind is weak
And plays these games of hide and seek

In youth, the conscience as it should
Rebukes the bad,  promotes the good

The older mind , more lightly clad
Recalls the good, forgets the bad

Recall the good and forget the bad.
That`s something that we all should do.
Just one man`s thought.
Ya know it does sound odd to be able to say that we were all born in the last century.
Thank you for another nice read Elizabeth

But could it be true,
That from the mind of the wise
Nothing can hide, yet all is good ?

So true, my friend, so true. This is a beauty and it will be treated as such when it is kept in my collection of favorite poems!

Love and hugs,
Lizzie
