I seem to gain
more relative time
every day.
On my first natal day
my youthful earthly
incarnation equaled
less than one percent
of the 158 years
our 1776 American
of Independence
had existed.
Now 61 years old
at this writing,
my present life
spans nearly
28 percent
of the 219 years
our noble Republic
has endured.
My male parent
was 45 times older
in Earth years
than my infant body
as I was born.
Gaining rapidly,
when my own body
reached age 45,
his body was only
twice as old
as mine.
Our relative gap
in time on Earth
more each day
until his body died
some weeks before
its 97th birth date
- A.T. Williams
