They Say He’s Too Old

on

What about the wisdom

that comes with age,

experience, trial, error,

and trying again?

 

So much of wisdom is knowing

that you don’t know it all,

knowing what you don’t know,

and how much who cannot know.

 

It’s working with what you have,

being kind,

having empathy,

and knowing it isn’t all about you.

Observer columnist Sharon Martin will be reading this and other poems during June 14’s Second Friday Funky Poetry Reading at the Funky Hair Ranch, 22 E. 2nd Street, in Edmond beginning at 7 p.m. She also will be reading July 13 at the Okemah History Center during the Woody Guthrie Festival’s annual Woody Poets event beginning at 11 a.m.
