“ Thin Skin ” ~ of time ~

Move on

It’s but one turn,

In your thin skin

Of time,

Make room

Tho you may think

You are immune,

With feelings young,

Enough to change

With each full moon…

 

Your nature

To take risk

Back then be fine,

When a near miss

Be akin to easy kiss, 

Save but life now

Holds near the winter

Of your seasons,

Calls for reason…

 

So think ahead

The while you find

To keep your head,                                              

For quite  likely

You’ve feelings

Of good stead,

Those left behind

Yet far from dead,          

Though well ahead,

Of held thin skin of time!

  1. I especially like the symbolism – “Of that thin skin of time.” So very true! Humanity seeks many rewards, yet very few consider the risks that come with them.

    • Thank you for that interpretation Rebecca. I particularly enjoy and appreciate when a poem of mine is read with an open mind, that sees beyond the lines words may at times impose in spite of the intended freedom. Jean-Jacques
