Self Lament

A lazy me has ignored my Taiji sword long For work I still to the Presidio march on From buildings I watch the white waves of the sea From sand beaches I hear them as well as the seals On Soldier Field, a parade of troops I can see Years passed by as fast as an arrow Surprising how much white hair I grow Too many vexing thoughts in my mind I doubt I’m a man of scholastic kind In life I’ve been but a man blind
