POEM 296: LIFE & TIME


Life is a privileged lady:

she shines with celestial radiance
in the years of her youth

she lives carefree of cares
like a baby of life harsh realities, unaware

she wonders of many fantasies
Utopian, manga, futura

she desires to feed her dreams
to satisfaction with the flames
of her heart’s perpetual fire

But time sits at a corner
mixing mischief for her

Life is a privileged lady
Time is her enemy
