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.

That's another lovely poem. Yes I agree, wisdom does come with age.
