None Are Immune To Ceaseless Ravages Of Time

None Are Immune To Ceaseless Ravages Of Time In vain we beg for that which once we had Things Time destroys with its whispering ease Sometimes its destruction is not so bad and at others, ones best gems it will seize. Time eats away as a ravenous beast. With cold indifference, on all it feasts. In eager youth we are too often blind To wicked hands of invisible foe We deny its bites with inventive minds Using our dreams to alter life's true show. Time eats away as a ravenous beast. With cold indifference, on all it feasts. Realization comes one fateful day we wake to see Time's long, razor sharp teeth bitter fruits of it having had its way seeing graves of those its laid underneath. Time eats away as a ravenous beast. With cold indifference, on all it feasts. R.J. Lindley, Sept. 4th, 1988 Rhyme, ( How Time And Fate With Heartless Ease Destroy )

Hello again, Robert. Just a note to tell you that this poem of yours inspired me to write one about aging too. It's called: "It's Great to be Alive". Check it out..................Carole :D

A very dark yet honest write, dear Robert! Time keeps marching on and stops for no one, so we must live every moment to the fullest. You have penned a wonderful reminder. God bless you, Rhonda xx

Time seems a ghastly thief and is a great taskmaster. Too bad for the body pains! I seem to forget that my soul, my intellect and my heart is enormously blessed. You insured a poem in me!

So true, Robert. Aches and pains, wrinkles and white hair remind us every day to live our lives with care.
