~ Ascribed Truths ~


Go ahead, “kick me while I’m down”
Someday I’ll wear a crown:

Forged in Fortitude
Engraved with Endurance
Positioned by Perseverance
Glazed in Gratitude
For strengths your weaknesses gave

And I’ll lay not in the grave
Cold, silent, still…
But echo through-out the ages
“Truths” ascribed to ‘yellowed’ pages.

“We are but ‘pages’ in this book called life”.
