Strength or Gentleness

Wisdom was listening in one day

(She had nothing else to do)

As strength and gentleness were debating

which was the greater of the two.


“I am the greater one!” said strength.

“I am a mountain.”

“I am a tree.”

“Nothing on this planet

Is more powerful than me!”


“Silly strength, you flatter yourself.” said gentleness.

“You’re not as important as you think.”

“For gentle is the air we breathe

and the water that we drink.”


“I believe”, wisdom interrupted,

“you’re both looking at this wrong.

For it often takes strength to be gentle

and a gentleness to be strong.”


“You can debate who’s greater until the end of time

And no solution will you derive...

For you’re strongest when you act together...


you need each other to survive.”

Age And Wisdom

They say with age comes wisdom...
I’d like to think that’s true...

I like to think I’m wiser now...
than when I was 22.

Wise enough to know Family is everything...
our link to the future...from the past...

To have known the joy of making love...
and the wonder of making love last.

Wise enough to know
How I want to be defined...

As a man who followed one philosophy...
It’s always better to be kind.

I am now 64...a little wiser...that is true
Yet I wonder...
what wisdom will be revealed to me...
by the time I’m 92.
