~ A Lifetime...~

Updated on March 5, 2014

I can have a suit of armor and a heart of steel

I protect the little ones like the lioness, her pride…

But all it takes

Is the creaking of the stale, mildewed hallways

Of my past

To shatter me like a porcelain doll.

The sounds, like a time machine

And I tremble now

Like I did then…

Years and years, and now, a lifetime…

Notches etched in the rod

Which is the timeline of my life

That is whittled away

Like the reed in the craftsman’s hands

And a lifetime lived

Is a lifetime lost

As it lands

In shavings

On the floors of time.
