Look Past What Meets the EYE

By American Journal’s Bard, Charles Stokes

I am old and gnarled with age
I am the poignant letter
I am the survivor of many wars
I fought and won the battles, but-
I can no longer carry freedoms torch
I am frail and jaded with time
I am you and you are me

What is it that you would have me do?

I am yesterday,
You are today,
Who is tomorrow?
What is it that we should do?

Yes, Look Past What Meets the EYE
