Time Marches On

  By: SeemsPoetic


Time continues marching on

Through the wars and wreckage

Nothing in its way

Through the years and decades

While we sit back and decay

Ignorance of everything

Living day by day

Some say they use time wisely

While others' waste away


Time continues marching on

No matter what we plan to be

Time will wait for no one

This is clear to see

Yet using powers of invisibility

Is how it seems to feed

Time is not a luxury

But a curse on every being

Long throughout the centuries

All who’ve lived and breathed


Time continues marching on

Killing just to please

Helping hands at its disposal

Propaganda in the streets

On the walls it heeds us

And on our wrists it bleeds

Wars on many fronts

Slowly killing while we sleep


Time continues marching on

Facades in our dreams

Merry so unmerrily  

Slowly down a stream

Tick

Tock

Tick

Tock

Nothing's what it seems

Rapid water barreling

Waterfalls at rampant speeds

Life flashing as it drowns you now

Struggling to breath


Time continues marching on

Funded by forgotten hopes and dreams

People marching to their graves

Buried with them deep

Dying without ever living

No one there to grieve

Richest of them all

The graveyard seems to be

Aspirations in the dirt

Sprouting ugly weeds

Untold stories captive in the caskets

Bursting at the seams

Time is still the culprit

Wasted time left roaming free


Time continues marching on

As do you and me

Time should not be feared

When living willfully

Though our time here’s very short

We simply must believe

There's still time left to explore

To make new memories

Live

Laugh

Love

Inspire

Find your destiny

And create your own legacy


Time continues marching on

Coming down the road

Ask yourself "Will it remember me?"

As it comes and goes


Time continues marching on

But it does not march alone

Behind it is a trail of history

Legacies and gold

I liked reading this as it gives me time to think back to the times that I may or may not have done these things as well. Have almost the same questions that keep me up at night while time quickly passes by. As I go through this is gives me chills in how many things pass by as time never seems to stop. It keeps going forward no matter how many unfortunate events pass by. We ourselves are in times loop and sometimes we forget that time doesn't wait for no one and yet we take time for granted. I enjoyed this writing very much and you showed me that time seems to be stronger than us and sometimes we could use a little of time's strength

I liked the questions raised in the poetry.
"Time continues marching on
Coming down the road
Ask yourself "Will it remember me?"
As it comes and goes"
The above lines are questions we shall ask ourselves often. I liked the old saying. (Time wait for no-one)
Thank you for sharing the outstanding poetry. I enjoyed this one.
