Into oblivion every soul drifts, Unaware of the world beyond. Friends and foes forgotten... Wealth and poverty left behind. All facades of real substance. Living it all,some say But only one life all have. Sow and reap others say We all indebted to life. Search for knowledge and wisdom ceases.... True wisdom lies with those gone beyond, These are the grateful dead who knows vanity uopn vanity they say begets vanity. Beauty for ashes,one loses all;for a time we exist,in another we exit For the grateful were us.

It seems you left us before I found you, but you must still be reading because my last poem got a message from you. I am glad you enjoyed it and thanks for telling me. I will read you poetry. Love, Joyce

I came to see your last post here. It was three years ago!! Praying for your full recovery, and that you can have success in the future. I had commented on this one back in June 2014! You have amassed great wisdom from your own life experiences by now!

I love the title you gave this, I was thinking it might be on that group from the 60's but instead, I got to see a very nice didactic poem that is filled with wisdom. So glad to see you back here after all this time!!
