The Passage of Time ( Maturity)

 

Another sunset envelopes my frantic mind,

As I calm myself trying to exist in a body inside of time.

 

My hair slowly transfomes from chestnut to gray,

What is aging?

No one can really say.

Aging is wisdom's acceptance.

 

Living in this moment  with grace and compassion will lead to transcendence.

As afternoon changes her gown to the navy of night,

My mind is freed as all is set right.

 

The moon plays among the stars in a game of silent pantomine.

I slowly become one with my maturity with the passage of time.
