The poem(s) are below...



have you ever truly thought
about what really matters to you....in your life
the breathing, the blood, the health
the pieces of the puzzle that let you... be you
you know... the tic

have you ever truly appreciated
about who really matters to you....in your life
those that love you....have loved you...those you love...have loved
the puzzling pieces that welcome you.... to be you
you know... the toc

listen carefully to the sound of your  own timepiece
for the sweeping hands of time slow for no one
and destiny winds a cruelly cold tightrope
live your life to the fullest..every moment of every heartbeat
for one day...she shall call  out your name 

you know the tic...and the  toc
