The Most Valuable Commodity

Every-moment-is-precious-to-those.jpg

Tick tock goes the clock
Indicating the passing of time
Fearful or hopeful?
The highest value
No good can even compare
Can never be sold
Useless to the dead
But daunting to those who live
Threaded memories
Joy can spend it well
Sadness wastes it every day
Infinite it isn't

Miniature Writing Challenge #54

Fear

FearFear is a warning 

A signal to stop and think

Reassess your life


A strong stabbing pain

Ordering intervention

Growing over time


Indecisiveness 

A paralysing feeling

Hiding true meaning


Trusting your instinct

Will kill the horror within

Prisoner released

A Race against the Clock

clock

An endless race we will never win

As the hands of the clock spin and spin

Ever so cunning this game we play

Makes us wonder if we’ve lived a day

A deadly curse dooming all mankind

This funny concept: the elapsing of time

In a grinding life we all believe

Because our goal is to constantly achieve

 Breath, some say to those who run

Take a moment to have some fun

We’re already late, the runners say

If we stop and wait it’ll all be taken away

A modern world revolving around success

Forbidding all to settle for less

“It’s your duty to society and to yourself”

But by the time you get there, you’ll have nothing left

 

Time Heals All Wounds

Time heals all wounds. I don’t entirely agree with that statement. The way I see it, time merely acts as a numbing agent. It only helps people temporarily forget or more accurately get distracted so their pains just linger in the back of their minds rather than take over their lives. Healing a wound requires completely cleaning and closing it; resolving the issue or getting closure. Time doesn’t give you that; it just clouds the issue in the hopes that one day it might be forgotten.

Time is a tricky concept. For as time passes it becomes a pain in itself. I won’t generalize and say that is the case with everyone, but it is in some. As days turn into weeks, and weeks turn into months and months turn into years, you find that time is not your friend. Because when you are caught up in the trivialities of life, time just races by not giving you a chance to stop and think. However stopping means you would have to look back and assess the past. This past might be filled with regrets, heartaches or tragedies of any kind or worse it might be empty.

The thing is time will never set the past straight. And the more time that passes the more complicated a situation can become. The real problem is that you can’t turn back time. History may repeat itself, but the past will always remain in the past. Once a moment has passed its gone forever, the question is how will you let it pass? Will you seize the moment or just waste it away?
