STOIC POETRY | Best by date

Updated: Sep 4, 2021

I think our expiration date is roughly our fiftieth birthday. What I mean, is that if we have not yet observed and said anything original by this age, then we probably never will. So, I’ll make good use of the decades of the twenties, and the thirties; in order to have something to say in my forties, before the light and grace of youth, energy and inspiration begin to fade ahead of death; as youth and early adulthood are the time for experience, and mistake, and adventure, by which we gain the courage and insight to speak something new. So, live it while we're young. And say it while we still can.

Be safe... But not too safe.
