The Final Country

The final country

What comes to soothe in greater age?
A yielding to a thing once feared,

Closer to the final page
The story fading, ending neared

Another book is lent more credence
Something in the void is filled

Trumpets trilled to greater glory
For a place where pain is killed

Heaven then, a harbor for the aged
Gone now, life's trials and trouble borne

When does the hand let go the tiller
And drift toward that safer shore?

Review Request (Intensity): 
I appreciate moderate constructive criticism
Last few words: 
Work in progress..
Editing stage: 


I like this peice it hugged an age we all reach one day, but we will fight the clinging years with all the mind we have left.
Good to see you here again, Yours Ian.T

There are a million reasons to believe in yourself,
So find more reasons to believe in others..
