April Poetry Month Poem 23

Time ~

Like the wind, is unseen

A powerful force of nature

Marching on

Time ~

Pays no attention to man's passion

His joy and sorrow

His life or death

Time ~

We mark in minutes, hours

Days, months and years

It leaves its own mark; the four seasons

Time ~

We see it's progression

Bud to flower

Womb to tomb

Time ~

Is illusive

Yesterday is gone

Tomorrow is not here

All you have is NOW!

Establish your identity with eternity. There is a story inside you to interpret.

If there is music inside you,

Sing now!

If there is rythm in your soul,

Dance now!

Celebrate the beauty of your spirit

Now!
