Sage

Legacies are unfolded like old quilts

Fortunes are changed with dollar bills

 

Breaths are taken…and kept

Their ghosts from graves, have quietly crept


Grace greatly given by beggars

Treaties, interrupted by triggers

 

The best help is offered by strangers

Loved ones speak with constant anger

 

Myths begin with perceptions gone wrong

Accidents happen when we pretend to be strong

 

Glory is granted to the humble

But no dignity is given to those who stumble


Dust gathers on dreams,

One takes while the other redeems


Trust is harder to gain than weight

But can more quickly evaporate


Experience doesn’t count if you did it wrong

Heartless = Headstrong

                                          

Health is a loan that you pay back over time

Your body pays as your age climbs


Love is a hard subject to cover

The advice differs from lover to lover


A crisis is a link to a lesson

Life is a class always in Session

 

The world bleeds for beliefs

Nations foolishly believe their chiefs

 

No man should ever judge

We haven’t enough purity to hold a grudge

 

Most people think in a herd……

And are THE most frequently heard

While the quiet are listening
