Weighed in the Balance

16 Feb
It often takes growing old
to realize what you hold
as most cherished
is ready to perish.

But it's not too late
 to re-evaluate.
size up the state
 of the heart's inflation.

Don't waste your leisure
instead, observe the paltry measure
 of temporary pleasure
compared to genuine treasure.

you discover
 by your gift
which by design
  can lift
above time.

Above a creature clocked.
Yet to the tedium-machine
most have flocked
while the uninitiated mock.

Let's step into our assignment,
found by the Creator's realignment.
the fulfilling dimension
  of spiritual refinement.
