    The Measure of a man

    A sincere call for understanding
    in life is necessary.
    when you are young time goes by
    so quickly there's no time to think
    of what's right or wrong, there
    is almost no time to be astute.

    What happened is now piled up
    as files of regret,
    a romance that flirted with youth
    in your absence.
    This is where you are measured.
    What did you do when your eyes opened?
    which one of your manly promises did
    you fulfil?
    Which regret did you cover?
    _Ciro Gazzidis
