HOMO SAPIENS



Valentin Savin
(my poems)

HOMO SAPIENS
(A man reasonable)

The old body weather fears,
The soul falls in decay.
Guilty are the years,
That refuse to stay.

The soul ages with the body
While ending its living span.
Life is amazing and Godly.
Hold onto your life, man!

You'll be buried when you part.
Perhaps recalled someday.
Or driven out of the heart.
You can't regain the past anyway.

You were born the perfect kind
And you must live and strife.
The Lord gave you spirit and mind.
Save them till the end of life!
