On Longevity: A Digniview

POETRY FORMAT, 23 Apr 2018

Francisco Gomes de Matos – TRANSCEND Media Service

LONGEVITY ? In a Book of LIFE more than a daily page
It is a generous, divine blessing bestowed on human age

LONGEVITY should be enjoyed in full dignity
As a cognitive force manifested as seniority

LONGEVITY should be deeper than a life-long experience
It is a Humanity-serving-and-humbling type of sapience
