LIVE AND LEARN

I stand within the gate with hat in hand
contrite as I can be, or so I’m told.
As I await my next (and last) command,
I hope it comes before I get too old.
For in this life we live, we’ll take a stand
And make our choices be they brash or bold.
We live within the dictates of our hearts,
And reap the benefits that life imparts.

(C) Walter J. Wojtanik

  1. We live within the dictates of our hearts,
    And reap the benefits that life imparts

    Very much so Walter! One plays it cool and works on them according to our own fancies. No one can deny our rights to make good our own way!

  2. Perfect rhyme and meter, Walter! This poem is what life is about:
    ‘For in this life we live, we’ll take a stand
    And make our choices be they brash or bold.
    We live within the dictates of our hearts,
    And reap the benefits that life imparts’.
