Expressions so deep that I feel within, Has made me realize, it's time to begin. Thoughts so tender and abrupt as well, Exuberant so few that I just can't tell. Capturing the essence of what it is to be, Learning to be gentle and living so free. The virtues of many will always fall, As the foundations fail the Almighty shall call. Reminiscing, of course, is good for awhile, But not all memories are replaced by a smile. And find one day you may just succeed, To live your life with little to need. For time is a luxury that no one can afford, Death is always approaching with his raised sword.

Time is to begin with expression. Wonderful couplet version is shared here in this page. Birth is destined to death and death takes a soul for beginning of life. 7

This is a great poem, White Wolf. No other way to say it. All protectors of the truth salute you w/this brilliant, cerebral poem. Free thinkers all stand up w/the raised double edged sword of truth. A powerful worthy of a double 7 and a fave. Love w/no limit.

Nice, Rick. And nice picture, too. But I didnt think Australia had wolves. Isn't it mainly just dingoes running around, looking for babies? : P

It is always there, waiting with its sword raised as we hope to elude it just a little bit longer. Nicely done my friend

True words, wise words, beautifully and nobly expressed. In old age, I have also written about the knocking of death's door. Welcome back, hopefully not from death's door, you've been gone for a while. John
