Aging Wisdom

The unshakeable truths of my youth

have been quivering amongst the cracks.

I see the spots of transparency

that details the holes in my youthful logic.

Can I condemn someone for choosing options

that I would not choose for myself?

The sex industry will never go away.

Standardize it and maybe people will see

the actual humans that are in it.

Unborn fetuses.

Whose life is worth more?

The mother or the child who people refuse to care for?

Moral ambiguities’ that I thought were solid

have crumbled under the weight of time’s experience.

Now, I find myself shuddering with horror at the same stories

but for entirely different reasons.
