Mankind

A Poem by Tate Morgan
"

Faith may be the timeless healer but lost time it cannot replace And all the calls for Gods mercy won’t give us back that youthful face

"

Tate



Thinking we’re the fountain of youth

we spend life as if it’s money

Casting away dreams as we go

never knowing dark from sunny

 

The first we waste so endlessly

never thinking to stop and rest

Playing until we fall asleep

living life through memories best

 

Father time always catches us

no matter how swift we can run

Reminding us of mortality

to see we don’t have too much fun

 

When we finally wake from youth

to find the years so sadly gone

We wish they had been spent better

not worrying about our lawn

 

Faith may be the timeless healer

but lost time it cannot replace

And all the calls for Gods mercy

won’t give us back that youthful face

 

So we play each part as we go

thinking back on another joy

To wish we had taken notice

of the child when he was a boy

well if we take better care of our selves and not worry too much as to stress ourselves ones that don't worry i have heard don't feel much pain and feel more peaceful in their lives it's had that effect on me and i have always cared for my self emotions to. I've had that feeling when loosing some one and love them so much my heart achs just to think of them the heart condition of the heart when it's not healed and broken can kill us so much but i don't worry and Enjoy the life Gods given me cause we only get one chance you've truely captured this nice work God bless my friend

ThAnk you very much
That is very true. I spent much of my life worrying about things that never happened--and it wouldn't have mattered much if they had.

A gem of truthful words. We may extend our lives by not worrying, but in the end, that's the end of it all. Forget not the child, but live through their eyes. Wonderful work again!

this poem is smoothly written and it is done with great detail. we do need to make time to enjoy life and not worry about the lawn as you stated. the hands of time can't be turned back and so we need to try to enjoy each moment that we can before Death is knocking at our door and we don't know when that moment may come calling. Very profound poem.

Another gem from your collection. Philosophical thoughts flowing as only you can do. I enjoyed this, can relate, but nowadays I tend just to 'go with the flow' and hopefully without regrets rearing their ugly head too much. Each stage of life is wonderful, besides wisdom comes with age and even though we may look older as time passes, I still feel 21 in my heart! lol Bravo Tate, you have made people think and I enjoyed all the reviews for this one.

So true indeed. As most things in life we only notice its value when its gone. So is life.
This is beautifully done, it has a wonderful flow and meter like there were music in its words...

I think this every single day now my two are 17 and 20, and long to go back and start again........beautifully written with so much wisdom.
