Iam Not Afraid Of Middle Age

I am not afraid of middle age                                                                                                                    Let the inquisition of cunning smiles begin                                                                                    My ambition is not conclusive yet                                                                                                                       My passion is not devoured by deliberation in the night                                                                                  For I know that I am the profit margin of my dreams                                                                                                                  And that my vices are as real as my virtues are strong                                                                 No, I am not afraid of middle age                                                                                                      For I have only just begun to rediscover this miracle                                                                     That I am

    : ) This makes me smile...what a lovely place to be...after wading through many "rivers of doubt" about almost everything and arriving at a place where you are at peace with yourself is priceless... Of course you could be writing about something entirely different, Michael. Nevertheless, it is it! Thanks for reading my Monoku and your comment. Will read more! Always, Annalise

    Another really beautiful poem. I can see that you are not afraid, as so many are, to look within yourself....hugs, Catie :)
