Spirit tells me to let it all go, since it is going, anyway.
I am two generations behind where today’s action is.
I hardly need to be reminded that Life is moving me
Into the past, while young people are moving into
The world I remember is being swept away, to make
Room for the world of tomorrow, that younger
Generations are creating, without much thought
To what once was.
When we have done all that we can, He tells me,
Then we must be content to wish them well, and
Get out of their way.
Does that mean that I’m on the way out?
We are all on the way out, at least in some way.
