Time

 Time is an elusive thing

that no one can hold on to.

It marches on its own sweet way

people drowning in its wake.

 

Why do we deceive ourselves

that we have so much of it?

Putting off from day to day

all the things we mean to do

from a mixture of laziness and fear.

 

'Seize the moment' someone said or I read.

'Yeah yeah', tomorrow' I said.

Too many tomorrows became

too many yesterdays I did not seize,

now all that's left are empty memories.
