“ Another Minute ” – then again –

Another minute

If not shorter,

There is a limit

Eventual fewer,

A matter lends

Now then again,

For time to end

But not before,

Ye make amend

For wasted time,

We do so spend

Be it a minute,

One left behind,

Or in between

Absent of mind,

We seek to gain

What will unfold,

Even to stumble

As age takes hold,

Be taste of humble

The while unfolds,

Another minute

Endures life’s toll,

Taken for granted

Presumes one find

Not empty handed

Tho beyond reach

Of another minute

Be wonted then again!

“ Into The Darkness ” ~ of a world going hollow ~

Sadly he fades

As will his shadow,

Ever so frayed

By lingering sorrows,

From loosing his way

To what he had left,

Be hours or days

Already too worn,

To assess his stay

Made be life norm,

Of requisite hold

Will cease exist,

As displace unfolds

Once meant to inhabit,

While rulers bent low

And annihilatingly bold,

Leads man into darkness

Of a world going hollow!
