Temporary memories

I’ve lost my way in search of truth
whether it be fact or fiction
questioning whether accepting more
correlates to receiving less

As years pass my heart swells
and my eyesight worsens
both troubled by the sign of the times

I’m reluctant to concede to pressure
managing to infiltrate my downtime
whether it be deep in sleep
or quiet contemplation

In the morning I find comfort
anticipating the rising of the sun
whether apparent or behind clouds

  1. Such is life. As our eyesight worsens, we see more. The rising sun is always welcoming. Destiny will come. Moments are what matters. 🙂

  2. Powerful, beautiful reflections. ❤

  3. Age makes us wiser. Nicely expressed… 🙂
