A Poem by Kathy Mc Cathy

How can the past and future be, when the past no longer is, and the future is not yet?


Thou created life or life is thou itself , it is the perplexity of this question 

Which makes I a  flesh bearing human ponder on the true understanding of eternity , a mystery 

Thou art considered omnipotent and life , thine creation 

Thou art even in a millennial , unchanged with the same energy flowing since the beginning of time 

Thine creation , or eternal life , you lay it out with change in every path , yet everything is the same as it was the first time 

Time and eternity are truly contrasting terms as St Augustine said “ “How can the past and future be, when the past no longer is, and the future is not yet? As for the present, if it were always present and never moved on to become the past, it would not be time, but eternity.”

Then is eternal life an actuality ?, Life with a past , future and present yet still eternal 

Will I ever live one , Never ending ink on the pages on my rusty old journal

I will light candles with eternal incandescence of hope , love and kindness

Awaiting for another one to light and care with the same intricacy and finesse
