Much To My Surprise

By John I. Blair

Much to my surprise
I find life inside this aging brain
Not at all what Id expected.

In my juicy, eager youth
I pursued the truth,
Preferred it plain.

Now Id gladly settle
For a fair approximation,
A surmise.

I thought wisdom came with years,
Not just doubts, fears,
Pain, tears.

2011 John I. Blair
