The Aging Day

Inspired by the riddle of the Sphinx from the Greek tragedy Oedipus Rex.

In the morning
there was life,
a small voice
screaming

I AM HERE!

In the afternoon
there was purpose,
a determined voice
proclaiming

“I am here!”

In the evening
there was reflection,
a fading voice
whispering

I was here.
