The insanity of a fading soul

The insanity of a fading soul

A Poem by Yasmin

If this doesn't make you anxious, I don't know what will

Tick tock
The clock is beating
place your soul into the right direction
your time is limited
no matter how fast you run
the race is never over or peaceful

Tick tock
The beats are steady and constant
Unlike your heart
Today may not be your day
But the clock beats still
make up your mind, life is slipping away
Skipping the storm inside of you
Beating steady and constant
It never fails or stops

It's not the best time
But your life is counting on it
Will it be what sets your soul on fire
or will it be what makes you burn it
Still it beats , the only way it knows how
Unlike your heart, it remains calm
Forcing you to jump over the cleft

Prepare for war, embrace your wounds
Fight before time wins
Set yourself on fire if you have to
Pass over the haunted dreams of lost passion
Watch your lights as they vanish
Today, the choice isn’t yours to make
But you get to decide
to abate the demons
Or haunt yourself down
To play it safe, or to announce revolution
The dice won’t help, nor will your soul
Your heart falls paralyzed but your brain seeks salvation
You are on your own again
Hold onto faith
Maybe a bright future will shine through your weakness
Or feed on your remains

it is never too late to fight for what is right, to make a stand.
Being on the verge for years, it is time to take that step.
Did you ever read Dickinson's poem "Because I could not stop for Death"?
I am reminded of that here...stop barreling through life...stop, smell the roses and take action
instead of just rushing along trying to beat time.

Seems to say, seize the day, even if it is fading away. Good advice. Better late than never.
