The Elder

Just Sharing My Brand Of Wisdom

Reading made me wise. Helping others to become wise makes me an Elder. — Henery X

The Elder

2022, Henery X ©

I only spend time in the present when there’s a need,

Outside of that, the future needs me to take the lead,

See, It recognizes a mind on a mission,

One that’s not controlled by condition,

Or swayed by tradition,

You can call me Morpheus and Neo,

Like I’m a Aquarius, with the heart of a Leo,

I’m rewriting the rules,

With books equivalent to public schools,

But not public schools,

Ran by the builder’s tools,

But by the one with a superior mind,

That’ll have you desire to cultivate your shine,

That’s what I call turning water to wine,

Am I sounding foreign to your ear,

Well, have no fear,

Because I equip you with scuba gear,

See, this is a deep dive,

One worthy of the ancestor’s archive,

You will rise, like Queen Maya Angelou said,

But before you can truly live, your old life has to be completely dead.

Thank you for taking the time to acknowledge my offering.

Remember. I’m not here to convince you to believe. I’m here to offer you something else to consider.

May we never lose our desire to outdo what we’ve already done.

Peace, Love, and the utmost Respect.
