You Can Never Pretend To Know
You can never pretend to know
Understanding has its own memory
Time does not wait for those who hesitate
Because yesterday is a forgotten story
But what does time offer except one chance?
For remorse is covered by falling sand
What lives in a mind full of regret is pain
And what lives within time is in your hand
You can never know if you always pretend
What you memorize is never understood
As you hesitate time marches forward
While a story tells of yesterday’s good
When chance arrives will you take the time?
To dig from sand is to uncover your remorse
The pain of a regretful mind will never leave
Unless the spade in your hand alters time’s course
