State of Time

Pleasant sounds now have ominous tones

Begging for the worst

Painting the best.

The artist is unknown 

While work is displayed 

Manipulated understanding.

Young are born 

Old still age

Brevity highlighting it all.

Muscles ache

While wasting away

So is the state of time.

Time Fallacy

Time Fallacy

There they stand
Thinking of all the time ahead
Racing to grow up
Ignoring lines they tread.
Enjoy being a kid!
Sentiment each parent sells
The dream that is always preached
Too often doesn’t turn out well.
Waiting to take responsibility
And rescued in their youth
Then shock from friends and strangers
When time reveals the truth.
You don’t have time you see
So stop wasting another day
Enjoy being young and open
But don’t ignore adulthood on its way.
Nothing lasts forever
Especially keeping time
Regrets leave more moments wasted
The body gets past its prime.
You should only have 1 BUT in your life
And that should be your ASS!
Don’t believe in having later
Or anyone will just let you pass.
Enjoy your youth, yes!
Don’t depend on the best is yet to come….
Adulthood is long and hard
And you will wish to again be young.
Chase that dream each day
Work hard to make it real
Preach honesty in your life
Keep negativity from what you feel.
You don’t have time, kid!
But you do have today . . .
Don’t throw it in the trash
Use your time to work, learn and pray.

Keeping Youth 

Walk into walls

To see if they fit

Finger in socket

Until the shocks quit.

Ring around the Rosie

Truck bed rides

Drinking from a hose

God is the guide.

Eat off the floor

Before the final second ends

Remember it all

Even when time isn’t a friend.

Betting On Time

Needing to scream

And through it have a plan.

Wanting to care

When no longer giving a damn.

Find the focus

And a reward is there to get.

Just be honest…

And keep the face from getting wet.

It needs to be okay-

Because so much will hurt being wrong.

As the fool bets on time-

When yesterday was already gone.

Stolen Moment


You don’t have to be my regret
I don’t want to silence your voice-
But the need for opportunity…
To give wants a voice.
No titles or lines
To divert or mislead…
Just the chance to explore-
And hearts to feed.
No love to cherish
But a heart to feel-
A relationship to adore-
And moments to steal.
I’m not yours
And you can’t be mine…
So let’s just steal a moment
Of each other’s time.


Nothing window

No hateful looks
Or apologetic words.
No example of happiness
Or sign of hurt
No acknowledgement of me
Or demanding of you-
No end to the end
Or beginning of new.
No rewind to push-
Or forward to leap.
No touch of a hand
Or grace of cheek.
No future to build
Or past to fix…
No heart to break
Or closing of lips.
No enemy to avoid
Or finding of friend..
No where to go-
My nothing again.
