Regret iv

live life regret
no fear
choices made
choice is right
war must be fought
peace is bought
at price fair to all
free slaves from themselves
let us hate someone else
if I die on earth today
does my soul go to a planet away
descent even deeper than depths of hell
how far the righteous fell
is that how life is spent
living day to day for rent
let us play let us pray for days till spent
ask forgiveness for break of day
who are we who are we to say
what place what role to play
opportunity runs through fingers
singers ring out in distance
earshot shivers fill
spines erect with strength
sand filters through cracks in hourglass of time
focus hour hand slowly moves inside
seconds pass by
too fast to see in slow motion
everything happens with no motion
spontaneously quantum leaping from mind
to stage of life’s rhythm rhyme
reality is bendable
awareness of dread feared
needing more information
receiving too much
filled with questions
no answers, no wisdom, no strength to share
audience of peers
greatest fear
finding out you did this to yourself
life the stage all the rage
smell of sage act your age
