Hearsay

They say that age
calms down the rage,
a lonely tear
the greatest fear,
no longer care
too scared to dare,
repeating days
but still okay,
secure in skin
while clearing sins,
In love with peace
living at ease
.

They say that time
forgets past crimes,
it gallops by
releasing ties,
as the breeze blows
the pain will flow,
forgiving cheats
without defeat,
erasing shame
not placing blame,
remove old blues
sweep in the new.

They say that change
can be arranged,
stick to your goal
hold your control,
knowing you know
intentions grow,
take things in stride
just let it ride,
keeping your eyes
on your own prize,
focus on you
wishes come true.
