BY FREE CEE lenear longevity

Written by: jeffry cohan

one cannot assuage one's age
once one is forced to turn another page
on to the next chapter at hand
and perhaps even a forgeign land

i cannot deny the wrinkles your eyes espy
wrinkles that weren't there yesterday
yet and still they are on my face to stay
linear signs that signify three scores of years
brought about by anguish and too many tears
the amount is impossible to gauge
because no one can assauge one's age

time has sculpted this face of mine
a furrowed brow by fate's design
behind these lines are a lengthened tale
and reminders of when my life first turned stale
