It’s Moments (poem)

Updated on January 31, 2013

It’s beating it’s beating

It’s message repeating

The moments are fleeting

A fact so unseating

That from it retreating

It’s beating it’s beating

-

But faced with the meeting

Its beating its beating

Ourselves we’re competing

Our grace waits completing

As seconds depleting

It’s beating it’s beating

-

Just what are we cheating

Retreating defeating

When dreams await greeting

And passions are heating

A question entreating

It’s beating it’s beating

-

The moments are fleeting

It’s beating it’s beating

Its warning repeating

It’s beating it’s beating

And what are we cheating

It’s beating it’s beating

It’s beating it’s beating

It’s beating

      -ing is hard to work with, but it is an incredible way to speed the beat to a frantic tempo. Jamie
