Today

Wading through a sea of all
Tomorrow's pasts.
Being in the present
Going nowhere
Fast.

Thinking in my mind of
Today's present,
Being in the past
Going nowhere
Fast.

Thinking overtakes me
Yesterday's present,
Being in the future
Going nowhere
Fast.

Today is always present, or
It's yesterday's present, or
It's tomorrows past, or even if
I'm lucky I'm in the future's
Always present.

Today, going nowhere
Fast.

Birth To Death


Innocent, young, eyes
Stood in awe.
White, hot, lights
Time to pause.
Gathering control of life.
Wisdom appears.

Innocent, old, eyes
Sat in awe.
Dark, cold, room
Time to die.
Gathering control of death.
Wisdom disappears.
