Just Wondering!

what sorrow that time should
kidnap youth
and Fate should revel in
the consequences
mere mortal human
plays hide and seek
from these masters of the
universe
and all the while we are searching
for our destiny
if not already preordained
we plod and trot
through middle age
shakened, if not shocked or dazed
lamenting
that earlier stage
a freedom lost in time
of freckles and embarrassing
moments
immortalized through memory
such is life, it is said!
what of experience?
does it have a stale by date?
before we lapsed into dementia
before our bodies groan
yet, could i face youth
second time around!

About pmisteil

Hi, my name is Paul though I write under other names like, Thatcher and Paolo, I love literature, art and architecture their passion and drama....the contradictions. The notion of Truth-who is the person behind the mask? Or does it matter! I like long walks and longer conversations over cappuccinos in a cafe with atmosphere and the rest is a journey!
