"The most important of life's battles is the one we fight daily in the silent chambers of the soul."

The lights were dim

The lights were dim,

The voices were soft and hushed

Life always fragile, was quietly ebbing away,

The body once so strong and sturdy,

Now, so frail and weak and wan,

Life had been a wonderful voyage

Across the oceans of time,

So many discoveries to enliven the mind

each one a new burst of adrenalin to

fuel the travel and time to

the next novel of joy

When the mind and body was fueled by

youthful energy and anticipation, eagerness

spawned experimentation unlimited,

unchecked by the barriers of age or inhibitions.

Time, a prime mover of childhood, of youth, of all stages of life,

of times moving too swiftly to grasp,

too fleeting to analyze its toll;

if indeed the zeal of living allowed this impediment of its flow.

We hurry on, to what? To where?

Ah! To new horizons, somewhere beyond the sunset,

beyond imagination or reality;

some feeling of the urgency to-move to meditate, to explore,

to see and feel new frontiers,

frontiers that had no shape of thought,

just of being swept along on wings of flowing exhilaration,

subtle but commanding.
