Life MARCHES Along..

Time MARCHES faster the older you get.
It takes all my energy just to keep up.
No time for stumbling or hesitating.
Keep up the pace or be LEFT BEHIND.

So as I'm hurrying to catch up,
it's important to be sure I'm FOLLOWING
the right leader who's going where
I want to go in a POSITIVE way.

In today's world, it's too easy
to get caught up in PESSIMISM
or CRITICISM and stop growing.
Change is the name of the game.

Lead or be led, but always
be aware of where the PATH
is taking you, IF its destination
fits your values and views.

Interesting ideas, Lin. I noticed that I reacted to the work "following", and I decided I don't follow any more. At this stage in my life, I have become my own leader. I guess now I just have to hope I have the wisdom to be a good one.

Your poem is great. I learn from you every time I stop here.
