What makes me tick

The empty page of an old sage is what needs to be filled.
To instill peace and then engage in what should not be killed.

    Robert, congrats on your win with this very wise and well-written couplet! I enjoyed the read!! Thank you for stopping by my Sublime poem. Yes, it reminded me of the holocaust, too, when I was finished but was not the intention when I started. Have a great day! Love and blessings, Rhonda

    Congratulations on your win, Robert! I like this short proverbial form and the good advice in it. Experience builds up good traditions to be kep and handed over to the new generations... Blessing, Hanitra.
