Talking to Yourself


Strong, agile, energetic
Resilient and passionately 

Preparing a place worthwhile
To grasp and grab
The best of life's offers.

Mounting pressure to pursue
Hands on plough
No looking back.

For the crown
Bearing the cross
Cruising with the youth 
Roads, crooked and straight.

Fate, blurring and unknown
Before the night
Making a worthy noon.


The night is here
Bodily bent, old constant tremble

Senility creeping in
Weak bones within wrinkled 

The wisdom tooth, a pride
Each night, a grey hair.

Children and memories
Moonlight and tales 

Reveries of young
Legacies set and shared
Waiting for the angel of death.


Accomplished end
Expected beginning.

Adieu, good night
It is all morning here.

Alone to claim
The record beyond
Good or bad.

At the left then Eden
Watching posterity
From a blessed bossom.
