To count the numbers going up,
Or think of them to be a countdown.
From one to 76 years to witness lived...
May not be unique to pioneer reached.
However to have learned many lessons,
Never to end them being taught?
This to accomplish,
With seconds, minutes, hours and years lived.
My thoughts become clearer to realize,
From one to 76 years to witness,
Had not to me been given.
God knows I have earned each one,
To deserve others to come.
Without accusations to create.
If God so wishes them to me to be delivered!
After and not before to expect,
That what I have done merits acceptance!
Life to live not to take for granted,
Comes with ongoing series of tests to pass.
Less complicated but just as effective.
Whether liked or not to get done.
Until The Teacher most call God,
Or reluctantly admit...
Something controls over,
Man-made ignorance and stupidity observed.
Has run out of assignments in this 'Reality!'
To administer to homegrown fools.
Who believe themselves to represent and be,
The 'pride' of a limitless Universe.
Remaining not to learn a thing,
Or what being human means.
And that to witness,
From one to 76 is neither nor either,
Surprising these times to see...
Taught to teach and preached to live.
As an entitlement sold to sell and defend!
With instructional chaos and attractive havoc.
