'Ware ye what ye wish for ...

by Ted L Glines

And God asked "Do you really want this?"

And we screamed "Yes...Yes...Yes... and Yes!"

And so He said – we could live forever,

except for accidents and (?) ...We would die...never.

"But, no more children," He said (being wise),

"Too many of you ... if no one dies."


That was many centuries – way back then

when hands were steady -- to hold a pen.

Eyes are dim – can’t even see the light,

no more wars – too old and frail to fight,

no more fun of love and play and lust,

Viagra cannot cure what’s turned to dust,

and as this world grows steady colder,

we live...and live...forever growing older.

We don’t talk - there’s nothing left to say,

inside my mind, I pray and pray,

mayhap an accident may come for me today,

anything – so that I could go away.


Never knowing we would drown in tears,

we wished for everlasting years ...

This ontologic composition in poetic magnificence and compliance with the task of Poetry, delivers a profound message and pays its dues to the treasure of The American Fine Letters.

In admiration,

This is very unique and challenges the question that mankind asks every time we lose someone we love, "Why did he/she have to go?" and you answer it with the logic of a sage. Very strong and wise write Ted that cuts through the mists of time.

This is an excellent poem, Ted. You've invited your readers to 'think' and see life in a different way ... what more could a writer hope for? Again, an excellent write, and I will be thinking ...
Reviewed by Paul Berube 1/30/2007

They tell me it's all in the head. It may be but what good is a young man's mind in an old man's body. I think aging with grace says much for a person. Very well written piece.

You have to be careful what you wish for. I love what you've done here. A very novel idea.
