~graying & balding~
~regretting & forgetting~
~slowing going down~
~sentimentally elemental~
~we are overcome by chance thought~

~enough~

~fearful of death~
~determined to live forever~
~impossibly worried~
~blind by half~
~we scurry through~
~the scattered alleys of life~
~in our time of youth~
~never enough time~
~never enough money~
~never enough love~
~grasping at ends~
~never enough~

~adulthood finds us~
~pursuing religion~
~politics & careers~
~running downhill fornicating~
~procreating recreating~
~scorched in a pyre of ignorance~
~tangle-fires of youth~
~we struggle to earn enough~
~be enough~
~realize we never learned enough~
~paid enough attention before~
~when we knew it all~
~frustrated that our children know too much~
~about the wrong things~
~refuse to listen to what we have learned~

~nearer to & acutely aware of death~
~fearful there is not time enough~
~to protect & teach them to survive~
~we worry the empty rooms of elders passed~

~graying & balding~
~regretting & forgetting~
~slowing going down~
~sentimentally elemental~
~we are overcome by chance thought~
~that what has been~
~might be enough~

~our spirits prepare us to journey~
~leave our feet behind~
~on the worried path we have made~
~we begin to remember~
~cocoon water births~

~with new eyes~
~caress what is left~
~our lovely children & life mates~
~that we may tell them~
~in our going~
~the joy of knowing~
~they are the all & ever~
~more than enough~
