Telling

So fleeting, time,
before the mind goes
or cancer takes hold,
the kids grow up,
we grow old,
more funerals
than weddings,
and loneliness
becomes a pastime.

So itís interesting,
how much is wasted
on ignorant notions,
acquisitiveness,
and selfishness.

What of passion?
If you find it,
hold on,
drink,
drown in it.
For once itís gone,
the dry spell
can kill you.

Corinne~
WOW !  What wisdomed thoughts
from such a youthful heart !

'What of passion?
Truly golden,
if you find it,
hold on to it,
drink it,
drown in it.
For once itís gone,
the dry spell
can kill you.'

Like I said ... WOW !

Most take for granted a love that is true.
You have said quite a bit in this beautiful poem.
Thank you
