Age is inevitable, wisdom is not:
You can grow older and no wiser
But you cannot grow wiser and no older.
If time’s passage is inevitable
And age is inevitable
You might as well do something
With all that time you’ll have
To experience and reflect.
Put another way
You may as well add wisdom
To all the hours you’ll naturally accumulate.
This is a way,
To make something of the hand we were all dealt:
The inevitable decline of your body
And the stark realisation of ‘The Human Condition’.
