To Take a Stand - PAD 22

Still Standing

At eighteen it was easy,
essential, to take stands,
for, against, on paper,
in public, in my heart.

At forty it was hard enough
to keep my feet, to remain
standing, change hurricane force,
any stand barely maintained.

Almost sixty, I manage tenuous
balance, resist momentum to
take exteme stands, dare not
sit this one out. Keep balance.

  1. Balance is the best, Victoria. Although balance at 60 is sure different than the balance was at 30. :)
