February 6th

I hear young voices,
excited.
Wanting
for work.

I see wonder.
Learning how
everything
works.

I taste time
slipping away.
Hands wrinkling
in slow decay.

I sense I’m moving
into my new roll,
helping youth
set their own goals.

I taste karma.
I created before me.
Sometimes youth listen,
other times they ignore me.

I feel okay.
Into peace I am drawn.
It is time to start passing
my knowledge on.
