“ Recalling ” ~ marks on a wall ~

I can recall

Most anxious

To grow tall,

With each demark

Tattooed the wall,

Showed short to tall,

But failed display

Beyond that wall,

Of what import

Likened to mind,

Fixed wise be mine!

“ Changing ” ~ to reach beyond ~


I’ve ample recall


To big from small,

Events the details

Of a measure

Notched on the wall,

That tells of progress

Growing bound,

What held be tall

Yet now looks down,

To see a childish goal…


Alas best have thought

To give the mind a shot

At growing smartly tall,

And place the measure

Well above the notch

Thus so grow to know,

There be more need

For brain to reach beyond

The marks upon a wall!
