Walking with the mind
Listening to stories
Ripens old memories
Of a life well lived
Or opportunities starved
Wearing shoes of neglect
The mind’s allowed to run
Chasing after a mirage
While the pace of life
Stays with the walker
Slowing with each step
With temper in restraint
Reeling the mind back
Allows us to resume
Our talk with the past
It showers its lessons
Fruitful as a raincloud
Keeping the mind in check
As we continue walking
