A Poem by Jonathan Bryant Dean

As Time goes by we know, we’ve less left know than when we first begun.
Time goes so slowly when we are young, but now it flies away.

As time goes by we learn, best years of our life are the ones to come.
As children we are so immortal, the facts of life didn’t get in the way.

So now that we have aged, let us still retain a touch of immortality,
With what have learned, imagine what dreams we can attain today,

Remember today as you go, for if time flies now at our middle age,
Time still will seem so slow, as it flies away, it will still fly away.

Hi I really liked the way this was laid out, The way the young and the old is mixed together, Time goes so slowly when we are young but now it flies being an example. Clever work sir. Time has so much influence over us these days we are all rushing trying squeeze 25 hours in to a day but Time is the most valubale thing we can give someone whether they be old or young and i think that comes across in your peice.

a very good poem on the cutenity of time

This is a decent prose poem.
Except the ending to me is redundant and unnecessary.
Word choice is spectacular though.
Try eliminating the use of the word "time" so much and paint the image differently that way

Hope this helps and happy trails! :)

A very good read, alot of thought and pondering was clearly involved.
I like it's sober tone and really appreciate the depth behind the simple words.
Good one Bryant. :)
