To Yet Be Wiser Than Yesterday

I can only wish, right?  We can only wish?  Well.. maybe some wishes do come true?

To Yet Be Wiser Than Yesterday
by Michael Doyle

A held tongue leaves time to think
Observing those things to be observed
These often bring us to the brink
Suffering as we do the toe of the undeserved

As infinite and unchangeable as the animosity
That is swept with a witch's broom of intensity
There's a prayer whispered in my poetry
Thanking God for my blessings humbly

It seems best to think on things wonderful
Each contributing in making our life more beautiful
All of them loaned on God's own borrowed time
Each parting with a sorrow far too sublime

I end each night on my knees in prayer
As I begin each battle against a world unfair
Wondering if God might even know or care
Then laying back with eyes on ceiling, I stare

Head on pillow, I can only wish for sleep
Lost in the blackness felt ever so very deep
Getting on with the business of an early rise
And that with a little more time, I might yet be wise
