What Measures A Lifetime

written by: Anne G

@TheInkTruth

 

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
