I am no more than pebbles strewn
along a barren, lonely beach,
though what wisdom I do possess,
I try my best that I might teach.

In many ways I am used up,
the physical, of lifeís retreat.
Age  tends to do that to us all,
like Thanksgiving without the meat.

Itís Christmas day and Iím at rest,
the physical, but not the mind,
like car at idle, standing still.
One day, myself, I hope to find.

The weariness of lifeís travails
tries overthrow the sensitive,
to harden who Iíve always been,
but I refuse, itís how I live.

There is no ear to hear the cry
of forlorn voice, of broken toy,
of man who struggles to survive,
while in him weeps a little boy.

Michael,

Survival is the name of the game for many of us. Though broken, we are not beaten. Heart hugs to you and that weary child within...or, especially to him.
I know what you mean.

Such a touching poem; I think you captured how many feel, at one time or another.   God bless.

Love and hugs for the coming new year.

Michael...The little boy in you is getting a big hug right now from the little girl in me.  Perhaps it will make them both smile.

Through smiles or tears, the child in us exudes its utmost on Christmas Day, doesn't it?  Well said, Auguste - Merry Christmas to you and yours...

When the child cries...all of nature in silence listens.  Hope your holiday was deep and warming, as your wise and honest writes.

Michael, my dear friend......the spirit that is Christmas is always shining in that big heart of yours.  And believe it or not, a lot of us here are idling in neutral as we get older, but this site gives us the power to shift into high gear, and take each other on passionate rides!!!  Best wishes and loads of good thoughts go out to you this Christmas from me and Music Maker!!!!  

Pen how you truly feel...
it is a safety-valve for the soul!

How lovely to see this here today, though sad the sensitive soul's words left.
