I CAN STILL MATTER

by Tom Krause
(Nixa, MO)

As time passes on

I turn the next page
to discover a new me
while I continue to age.

I may no longer be
who I was long ago
but I still can matter -
that much I know.

With a new set of tools
I have gathered from time -
I keep looking forward
to more mountains to climb.

My best is not over
as the skeptics might say -
I just learn how to conquer
In a much wiser way.

So don't sell me short -
I am not nearly done.
I CAN STILL MATTER -
I've only just begun.
