You Can't Beat The Clock

You Can't Beat The Clock

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)
"

Inspired from something said in a movie today.

"

  

 

  

Destined dreams become pale

in the deepest crater

so come away from the dark side

of the moon

to see the glorious reflections

of your bright mind.

 

In your head

seeing may be believing

but believing what you don’t see

Shouldn’t become fiction.

 

Remember you’re never too old

to dream

and never too young to die.

 

Though you can’t beat the clock

you sure can challenge life.

darkside - dark side

n the moon -- "n" the moon?

Shouldn't -- shouldn't

Okay, my little nitpicking aside, I want to know, what movie was it that inspired you so?

You can't beat the clock but you can make every tick and every tock count as much as possible.

An interesting write for you Cowboy. You seem to be expanding your writing horizons lately and I am liking it! :)

'Remember you’re never too old
to dream
and never too young to die.'

I love this line! Great poem, and great wisdom too! Keep finding that inspiration from random places. It will come in handy!

Thank you very much... appreciate that.
I love the line " believing what you don’t see Shouldn’t become fiction." To me, it gives this poem a sturdy foundation. It's amazing!

And you can believe in magic. I know I'm quite happily called a witch but that is because I truly believe that it is there in nature's making. Lovely poem cowboy - must have been a great film! :)

You do what a movie has a hard time doing... slipping deep inside the mind.. Hope and helplessness mingle here to push us toward our inevitable end.

I like the wisdom in these words. Better to be alive then waiting for someone to direct you. A very good ending to a outstanding poem.

This is really nice. Its like your saying just because you don't believe it doesn't make it true and keep an open mind and don't be afraid to live, no matter where you are in life. You have a really nice poem there.

I loved this. We can get inspired easily, being a writer. Even if its the smallest of things. I hope your recovering.

OMG, it is all profound, but I especially relate to the first verse!
Yes, we are never too old to dream, and never too young to die!
I can specifically relate to both lines! And thanks for the timely reminder that one may always challenge life...(like this new site....smiles)

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool
