A Different Vibe

24 Oct

 

 

By: Tony L. Jefferson, Jr.

 

 

The facts are in front of our eyes

As we see the skies fly by

I realize that time is my enemy

But also my ally

Many things in yesteryears

Opportunities that all have passed

I took a different route

One of many that we travel in life

The endurance of pain as you try to gain

Knowledge

Hidden for the most part in secret code

By the evil that began

Webs spinning like a million spiders

Most get tangled and their soul consumed

But some who went through the true grit of life

Navigate the webs only stumbling at times

Learning to never make the mistakes they made in the past

The future is in reach but there are so many roads left to travel

Some much time to still gather

Time to love and be loved

Love keeps the world spinning

Hate slows down time blocking gifts from above

Halting progress while the other succeeds

We must not become tangled in the affairs of others

Instead we get our house in order

So that the path to the light becomes a little clearer

    This poem is beautiful. I love his interpretation of time. I feel like he’s saying that whatever we have to live for is not within our reach.

    Great poem. I love these two lines : “We must not become tangled in the affairs of others, Instead we get our house in order” If we would all focus on us instead of others, oh what less problems we might have.

    This is great…

    “I realize that time is my enemy

    But also my ally”
