Like Ships in the night,
We pass each other, pass each other,
In silent-footed cotton socks

Life moves fast;
Time and tide
Wait for no man.
Even in no man’s land, even in Noman’s land.
Forever looking back, extended and suspended,
In an entire spun time bubble,
Extended and Suspended.

To capture the essence
Of universal truth,
Through a life with you;
A kiss in the wind.
Set, In our ways,
Set it to fail;
And lo a jubilant I told you so,
When inevitably proved right.

And we carry on secure in our fortitude
And good sense;
And with time,
With every year,
We forget to ask,
What if?

So, this is called getting stronger...

Wisdom through knowledge,
Wisdom through courage,
Wisdom through naiveté,
Wisdom through nonchalance
Wisdom through Not knowing any better


from Truth BeTold, released March 23, 2018
