THE TEST OF TIME

THE TEST OF TIME

Sunset in Everglades National Park, Florida

 

THE TEST OF TIME

We all succumb to it.

It takes its victims.

No one is safe.

We wither.

Dry up.

Turn to dust.

Life goes on.

Until the next victim.

Bites the dust.

And so it goes.

On and on.

It continues.

In waves.

In cycles.

In perpetuity.

No reason to fight it.

Only to accept it.

THE FIGHT






THE FIGHT

 
Night into day.
Day into night.
I’m swept away
As I hold tight.
 
The night numbs me,
Making me cold.
The days rush by
As I grow old.
 
I prefer day
When the sun shines.
The night is fey,
Dark through the pines.
 
Night into day.
Day into night.
Days become grey,
No strength to fight.
 

OLD GLORY

Step inside.

I was once a beautiful gazebo.

People would use me for parties.

There would be dancing.

Children would play their games,

like hide and seek.

The sun favored me.

The moon adored me.

I could do no wrong.

Then weeds began to grow.

I began to splinter apart.

There would be no more visitors.

Why you may ask?

I was a casualty of time.

Time passed and

so did my glory.

TIME STOPS FOR NO ONE

Time continues on and on.<br /> Without stopping or hesitating.<br /> What if time stopped?<br /> Would we still age?<br /> Would everyone and everything<br /> come to a stand still?<br /> It’s nice to dream, isn’t it?

Time continues on and on.

Without stopping or hesitating.

What if time stopped?

Would we still age?

Would everyone and everything

come to a stand still?

It’s nice to dream, isn’t it?

IF TIME STOOD STILL

What if time stood still?<br /> We wouldn’t get older.<br /> We would look the same forever.<br /> Would we be bored with life after awhile?<br /> Would be less in a hurry to get things accomplished?<br /> There would be no reason to do things right away.<br /> We would just put off what we could do today for tomorrow.<br /> Then tomorrow, we would procrastinate for the next day.<br /> Let the clock move ahead.<br /> It would be awful to be stuck in time.

What if time stood still?

We wouldn’t get older.

We would look the same forever.

Would we be bored with life after awhile?

Would be less in a hurry to get things accomplished?

There would be no reason to do things right away.

We would just put off what we could do today for tomorrow.

Then tomorrow, we would procrastinate for the next day.

Let the clock move ahead.

It would be awful to be stuck in time.
