Poetic Wisdom

For some my
musings are a lifeline of hope
a light shining
within the shadow of despair
for others

A warning of
mistakes to avoid what is to come
along the path of
our journey through life until death
take us away

Words of wisdom
learned in the school of hard knocks
passed onward from
one generation to another until time
comes to an end

Those who heed
my words may yet avoid the perils
into which my
footsteps led me of being shattered
into little pieces
