Questions of time

She simply said no day can end complete without

making an enemy

with a smile on her lips,

I watched not quite understanding

why or how that could indeed be

a good thing.

When time is not an abundant commodity

can not be bought or sold

what good can come

of such darkness or is it perhaps

just my perspective

and am I blind somehow

but I do not think it’s that at all

and there can be no joy found

in adding ire to another

as their time is valuable,

as areย the opinions of each soul

if only to that soul who seeks not change,

so I choose instead

moving forward as the sand trickles down

for each grain left

to spend it in kindness

leaving friends instead of enemies,

creating bonds instead of cutting cords

and of rising above and embracing the choices made

as others see fit,

but I can’t stand idly by

as the storm brews

so I slip into the wind

free and at peace

unengaged,

leaving prints of a heart

that still believes in something good.

  3. Good morning Sheldon,
    I always enjoy questions that make me think
    And to wonder where some things come from,
    Hope all is well and I’m still commenting,
    I am able to comment on my own,
    But if I comment on your blogs,
    It’s going to go to spam till you dig me out….

  4. The old ways had their space in time
    there is or was a lot to learn if not just to listen
    Now a days it’s better to have less than more
    Simply beautiful
    Powerful and inspiring
    Still looking though

  9. It is your undying spirit that forces others to press on:

    “so I choose instead

    moving forward as the sand trickles down

    for each grain left

    to spend it in kindness

    leaving friends instead of enemies,

    creating bonds instead of cutting cords

    and of rising above and embracing the choices made

    as others see fit,

    but I canโ€™t stand idly by

    as the storm brews

    so I slip into the wind

    free and at peace

    unengaged,

    leaving prints of a heart

    that still believes in something good.”

    And, it is such a beautiful thing to witness.
