Once Upon a "Time"

Sunday, July 21, 2013 21 Comments

I
Once upon a time, 
Lived a blood tie, all docile.
and then came discord
Brother and sister
stung by turmoil, set apart
thrown by sands of time

Don't leave me, she plead.
 little did he realize
that she was not wrong

making his choice, leaving 
her high and dry, he told
she is not worthwhile

Time says blame me not
for silly reasons when human fought
don't call me bad time

time is constant on
the move. invest in it to 
bloom, it pays back.

Learn it's value, Oh Men
once gone, it doesn't come again
only guilts remain



II

Time heals and reveals
the naked truths of each life
whom and why one lie?

Time is like sea tide
alarming, flowing, mobile.
They both wait for none.

  11. Poignant thought, we mustn't call the time as good or bad. It is merely running it's course and it is what we sowed that we are reaping.

    Nice post.
