  • Persuasive lies

    Persuasive lies that held no truth,

    beguiled me when in my youth.

    When life was innocent to me;

    there was no way I could foresee

    these Persuasive lies

    I heeded not, advancing age,

    my youthfulness was my assuage.

    Impetuous, I squandered time

    I need not fear, in my prime

    these Persuasive lies

    Decrepitude now creeping in.

    Now looking back, my life has been;

    spent with wanton disregard.

    and I can see how life was marred

    by these Persuasive lies

    And half of them were self-created and defined - or at least that's something I've found to be true. Very wonderful 'coming of age' piece here Graydon. Much wisdom in your words.

      My thanks RLW, and yes, most were self-created truth known....

        WOW, lyrical and simply told, Graydon, I felt each brick of this poem was so carefully laid. I was also greatly enthralled by the ease of your rhymes, nothing forced.

          My thanks again Tanner, I felt compelled to write this after talking to an old W.W. 2 vet yesterday...

          Many thanks Alexandra, it's a type of medieval poetry I'd not seen before, know as Rondeau

        Maybe a statute of limitations is in order Graydon. Nice poem.

            Oh darn. Fabulous poem. I doubt you would find anyone not guilty of this. Oh we love like we shall live forever.

              Thank you Rach, if you'll pardon my saying so however, your photo is contradictory to your comment.

            Hi, graydon, This is an interesting poetic form of which I was unaware. It's clean and simple, and you have used it well to tell your story.

              My thanks MH. Yes it is an interesting form of poetry. Here's the set if your interested: 15 lines with a set rhyme scheme, broken into three stanzas – quatrain, quintet, and sestet.
