Life grows in stages
It has been the same through all ages
I grew in an era of naivety
Mellowed in the eighties to the sounds of punk
Too soon it was over
Wasted years full of fear and living to expectations
Midlife washed over in ignorance
An established pattern, no real challenge
An abrupt realization just in time
A change so fundamental
So that Life lost its rhyme
Face to face with myself
Who the hell am I?
I threw off the mantle of normalcy
I challenged the role of life
I grew up
Now I have a clue
Try for something new
The past, the now, the future
All are one – the threefold nature
Of reality not actuality
What fun!
