MANY ELDERS HAVE REJECTED THE VIEWS OF YOUNG ONES


A SOUL IN DILEMMA

A SOUL IN DILEMMA

Part One:

On a long march of life...
The mind still gets and keeps;
From the good and bad, it learns and sorts.
Forgotten are the bad that wouldn't help.
Lost are the good, acquired, but not practiced.
Help of the present
The ideas remembered, keenly give,
And of the future, the thoughts diligently sought, are not reluctant.
The more you live, the wiser you become.
The more you live, the more foolish you become.
While there is potential, do the good.
Then your fruit isn't behind you.
We are marching forward on a one-way road.
There is a soul at the junction.
It taciturnly searches for past endeavors.
A drop still adds water into an ocean.
Condemn not the drop has made the ocean to flood.
But deep within you a big man.
