Day 14 – Something beginning with T // Days Of Our Lives (VIII)

 

decemberpoetry

It’s one of the things that defines our lives
Our beginning and end

Some live intending to leave some marks in its sands
While some are just grateful just to have it
– And they try to enjoy every last part of it

The sorry ones are the ones who forget
It is what we do – humans – forget
But these ones get so distracted,
they forget that we only have a limited portion of it.

“The trouble is, you think you have time.”

Time.
The ever present
Only began to matter when the first creature died.

If only we would ask,
It would testify of the cycle of life
– the circle of life
“Humanity, being the glory and the shame of the universe.”

    Hmmm.
    Humanity… Glory and shame of the universe?

    Mmhmmm. Thoughts?

    😆, I had to check to be sure whether I left that in there or not.
    It was between that and “the more things change, the more they stay the same” or some variation of it. Thoughts on the quote?

    “the more things change the more they stay the same” fits the ‘circle of life’

    Yes!

    And to think I once considered writing and recording a spoken word piece with that title. 🤓😎

I'm curious, what did you think? Talk to me; leave a comment
