There Was A Time

Vintage Words

I did not understand or could not explain

anything at all at the age of eleven. Living

was day to day. I awoke to be bombarded

with information I believed to be useless.


I slept and dreamed that understanding

would happen at waking. Sometimes

it made sense. Most days it did not

make any sense and I just went with

whatever was happening that day. 

Disappointment became the verb

disappoionted.

.

For years, this was my mantra "Go forth

and see it all, believe nothing, improvise."

The goal then was to be feckless.

then the demands of adulthood happened

and, unprepared, I dreamed of not

understanding quite so much. That

pretty much describes my working years.

.

Old and retired and very sage, I sit

and write down words thinking, fecklessly,

that someone will read them. The fine 

information I gathered purchased a modicum

of wisdom and interaction with fate

made me realize life is not so much short

as it is inevitable.

I've been hearing a lot

I've been hearing a lot lately how life is too short.

It was nice to read it in a different manner.

 

"life is not so short"

 

It made me smile.

Nice one Lady A. ^.-
