Just what will we confess?

According to the young hedonist folly

Pleasure will always last

But with age and experience

This idea will fade into the past

How many errors of judgement

Does it take for us to learn?

When all is said and done

To whom shall we turn?

According to Socrates

The unexamined life is not worth living

For the parent and the child

It’s all in the giving

For every point of view

Our willingness to express

Our need to find some meaning

Just what will we confess?
