Two Thousand Tomorrows


Just once, in a lifetime
We may step on a dime
But, all of our lives - we climb
And some - attain the sublime

As for them - two thousand steps
In years, or in other tests ...
Is measure of a life fulfilled ...
By the same potion others chill

But all our tomorrows come ...
Measured in thousands (some)
Just as we have now measured years
Over and above our inept fears

- Tristram
