Turning Points*~by Constancio Sulapas Asumen Jr

DXXX ~> Turning Points*
(Opus530 ~> Turning Points)
(1)
While you’re still a man do something above
And beyond human frailties; ere losing
All human qualities endowed with love
And caring; free of willful foreclosing
Or stealthy fait accompli composing:
Lest you pass some turning points unaware,
Make sure to take your bearings everywhere!
(2)
Likely, the thinkers, not the tinkerers
Can think your whimsies to obsolescence
Ere they are buried in pits of despair,
Courting oblivion with convalescence
Unless they vanish with effervescence:
Get pregnant with wild brilliant ideas;
Save the birthing of the twin Messiahs!
(3)
The turning point of youth’s exuberance
Shredding entitlements from innocence,
Drains the nectar of wild extravagance;
Frazzles the fabric of learned competence,
Flaunting jubilation with insolence:
You scorn the domain of civility
When you turn chagrin on humility!
