"Chugging through life, we've come far, pause dear hearts, to ask who we are." Quote by - Unseeking Seeker I think about my childhood days, For some parts I was in a daze; I think, do I remember it? Or did stories create this maze ! Soul, spirit and character knit, Though emotions have changed a bit; Each joy and pain seems enduring, For have courage to never quit ! Health fades as I am maturing, pills to slow death are assuring; my life quest a quiet battle, words of kindness reassuring ! My life journal I call- that hill, To not write words never that ill; Observations page after page, My words may make some hearts rattle ! I have arrived at a bliss stage, It transcends all joy, pain and rage; And cleanses my soul of all grief, To fling open with glee my cage ! ____________________ January 13, 2022 Poetry/Rubaiyat/Who Am I You Ask Copyright Protected, ID -01-1421-425-13 All Rights Reserved, 2022, Constance La France Written for the Standard contest, Who Am I sponsor, Unseeking Seeker, Judged 01/14/2022 First Place
