Young men labour unburdened by care

Each day bookended by self,

Between Pillars of Consciousness waypoints of possibility converge.

Taken or abandoned they are what makes a life.


Old men in their slumber are shackled by regret,

Cavernous hours shared with ghosts.

The open-mouthed yawn of days bereft of hope

A life exhaling its precious intoxication.
