Rivers Of Time

                         Rivers Of Time

Life is like a river of time as everything you do
will affect everyone else's life, you need to understand
that no person on this planet has total control of their
destiny, as it could change at any second of the day,
we measure our life in terms of time and events so 
just one little change could change the world as we
know it, as soon as you wake from your sleep, there is 
change, you only have to look at the weather to realise 
that, and each time you make a decision to do something 
and you change your mind, it is altering future history, why
even a humble homeless person living on a park bench 
could change events happening right now, for example
major historical events could all have a different outcome 
if one little thing had been different. When you pick up a 
pebble and throw it into a pool, the shockwave will cause 
ripples, and life reflects the same scenerio, the ripples could
be called events, as the water has changed, as did the forming 
of our planet Earth, when the  the cataclysmic event took place 
in the birth of our solar system, eventually creating life on Earth.
we have this to be thankful for, as without it we all would 
not be here today, the rivers of time is the cause and effect 
of mankind, each day in our lives are totally different as the patterns
of clouds in the skies, if we do somthing bad many people are hurt
but it goes beyond that, the small act of evil, could change how the 
world could be, if a person is injured in an accident, by changing his 
previous actions prior to the injury, may have prevented his suffering.
 there are four different dimensions that are known, three of them we 
can move freely through, but the fourth dimension we are all prisoners.
I am refering to time, we can do as we wish in our present, but we can't 
change our past or know our future, in actual fact we live in three dimensions
Past, Present and Future, as the Present becomes our past every second we 
are here, and we become a part of our future one second later, time is really 
relative, as Albert Einstein said, and he is so right, as everything that we do 
or don't do can reflect our events, by trying to change history you create a 
paradox, were you could make the event better or worse, it is a matter of 
conjecture, whether it will or will not benefit man, yes we are controlled by 
the river of time and only God knows the true outcome of events.

    Hi there - I'm quite new to this site but I have posted some writings and now I'm taking more time to read the writings of others. I've come across your poem, this poem, and all I could do was nod in agreement. Even those things that I write about have to do with time. Very nice! Z

    Welcome Zoria, I have only been here a short while myself and thank you for reading this poem I have around 38 here now, some old and some new, I go beyond the boundaries of poetry sometimes and I have a very creative mind so it may be hard to understand sometimes, try some of my other poems and be inspired, all the best.
