Looking in a Blind Mind

                    – the while willing to wait –

A fellowman’s fate
Be in a blind mind,
Short of haste state
For end of the line,
Will reason be late
A welcome assign,
Thus eager to wait
On ploy of resign,
Yet invokes debate
Tho beset inclined,
May assure a place
At end of life's time,
As fellowman’s take
Endures a blind mind,
The while willing to wait!

Alas youth of long days,
be soon elders short nights…
