Poem - The Same

I saw “Star Wars: The Force Awakens”. Part of the draw of the movie is that some of the original actors are in this move. The accompanying actors are about the same age as their seniors, back in the 70s. This inspired me to write the poem “The Same”.


The Same
Poem for Day 357 – 20151224

See the bloom of youth,
come around again,
with the same beauty
seen so many times.

People came before,
old when I was young,
they all had their time
shining in the sun.

Now I am the same,
echo of the past.
The wheel has turned
and now I look back.

Just a memory,
oh so long ago
when I was the same
age you are today.
