With Age, Comes Wisdom


The older we get, it seems the smarter we all become,

Then, at last, comes a point, when of a sudden, dumb.

Along life's longest journey each one learns quite a lot,

When we all need it most, it's like everything we forgot..


As we watch all about us, misleading words are spoken,

Everything politicians say, seems only their's as a token.

The truth's bent quite a lot out of shape, unrecognizable,

While rich get richer, the country's debt gets more sizable.


Just look around at a beautiful sunset, its soothing effect,

The true wonders of this earth are greater than we expect.

How much does a morning's cooling breeze mean to feel,

A precious garden of roses, the scent of Jasmine, so real?


Yes, wisdom does come with aging, as all about may be raging,

Challenges that we face on a daily basis, all do seem engaging.

We've each learned to take good things of life with those so bad.

The fact that we have a life at all, quite a gift, we should be glad.
