What Measures A Lifetime

What Measures A Lifetime

written by: Anne G



What measures a lifetime

for you and for me?


Calendar pages

and stained memories


Snapshots of moments

of time mapped in lines


Wrinkles that crinkle

around mouths and eyes


Years filled with laughter

sadness and fears


Loves tender touches

regret and the tears


Struggles that test

resilience and strength


Pardon me, I digress…


The chapters may differ

the choices as well


Yet in spite of the losses

and no matter the gains


At the end of the road

all our lifetimes will count

Why write?
I write because I am:
Driven to distraction by the inequities of the society in which we live.
Motivated by cruelty, abuse, ignorance and indifference.
My intention: To poke, prod and provoke!
"Moderation is a fatal thing. Nothing succeeds like excess." - Oscar Wilde
