More Attention Paid To Caution

Poem By Lawrence S. Pertillar

A journey one takes to adventure,
Once in those youthful, daring and brave days...
Becomes more noticeable to appreciate,
To closely examine...
When one has been on it,
For quite some time to realize...
With eyes wisened and open wide,
What was considered curiosity to experience,
With less attention paid to one's steps made...
Has aged with more attention paid to caution.
