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
