A Matter of Time

Oh the scenes I've seen...

:

Through it all I saw

Power sought,

Towers wrought.

Wars were fought.

Spoils caught.

I walked golden halls

Built by royal laws.

Still behind it all --

A crowned clown,

A human flawed.

And so a kingdom falls.

:

Bright lights

Dimmed into night.

What now appalls

Once enthralled.

:

The dust always settled.

I looked down...

On the ground...

Crushed petals.

Behold the old rusted metal

And medals.

Victory!

Sweet!

But it never beat

History.

After the wins,

A chapter ends.

Days and facts

Faded to black.

:

It was there

I fell to despair.

But in my somber pall,

My spirit called

And reminded me to mind the

Timeless truth

Inside of me.

:

Hearts beat.

Dark retreats.

Thistles shrivel

And, for a time,

The plot repeats.

:

Moments! These moments!

They are fragile components

And sometimes opponents.

:

The superficial

And artificial --

Not an affordable

Luxury

Even for one granted

Immortality.

:

The forest,

After all,

Lies beyond these

Trees.
