My Life I Sing

And more, I'm growing old.
Through it all, the odd
beauty in refusal remains.
Conviction's an awkward feast.
I haven't changed the world.
Risk sometimes is poetry.

I love these lines too, particularly the business of growing old tempered by the beauty of refusal. The notion that 'conviction's an awkward feast' is powerful and sets my head a jangle.
