NOW AND THEN – Promote Yourself


Once deep thoughts ruled
The day,
Now the struggle
Is to stay awake.

Once creative labor
Ruled the day,
Now keeping house
Takes priority.

Once the lives of loved ones
Ruled the day,
Now distant memories
Fill the void.

Once hope of things to come
Ruled the day,
Now the end
Draws near.

So it is
The cycle reaches conclusion,
So it is,
A live spent.

Walt Trizna
