Seconds lost on questioning, why time's not left to chance? Each moment is everlasting, fate's no relentless circumstance. We act as if time can be saved, how pointless to believe. Never has one debt been paid from hours or days received. A lifetime is a leaf of yesterday with no relevance to tomorrow. Reliving doubts will just betray all claims once paid with sorrow. There is no time for one to slay with so many aspirations left in play.

A probing poem, Charlie, yet in a more profounder sense, a waste of time. I have regrets the way I've lived my life, but only those brought on me by outside forces. Otherwise, I've accomplished things I wanted to. Many thanks for the stop by, sir./ M

Wow, Charlie! This is, in my view, a profound poem. Read it twice and I'm in a hurry. I don't have "time" to read it a 3rd "time" right now(lol)...but I love it and it's my new FAV!

you wouldnt believe how i was surprised....to find that destiny can be altered but not revised....we will all die exactly when we should....all we really control is if we are bad or good....which will be determined by the path we take to get there....because the choices we make define our level of despair....awesome and inspiring job here charlie....

Sorry I haven't been on much lately. These pop up ads that are videos take over my phone. It's maddening so I just leave for the day. Just had one for a new car. Unless it's a free one I have no need.
