Do We Intersect With Time...Or Does It Intersect With Us?

 

I look back at a kid of sixteen...

Too young to know what life can mean.

And to a young man of twenty one...

No search for ambition...only in searching for fun.

Later a Man of around thirty...

Who had done much...but didn't feel worthy.

I look back at those men through a couple of photos...

And wonder what I was thinking...No one on Earth knows.

Could I only have had a jump on Time...

Would I have been one step ahead...Not behind?

To look at the whirlwind of confusion in my mind...

How long did I journey...and never once find?

 

Oh...of years that were crazy...and of some that were great...

Some that I mention...and some where I cursed my fate.

Did I come to some place...at some point...and hear my alarm clock ring...

To awaken and see...Life's only a Dream...Must make the most of everything!

At one time or another...We merge with ourselves that we once knew...

And return briefly...once again...to be ourselves...if only for a minute or two.

Of time that intersects in my way...all the time...I must say...

Give me back the time...that you know...that was time taken away.

I do not want to presume that I have all the answers by now...

But...Let me tell you...I sure have learned alot more now anyhow.

So...Let me go back in time to that boy...or that very young man...

And let me fill him in on my knowledge of time...As much as I can.
