At This Point In Time

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.

This Point In Time

This Point In Time

At this point in time, what is .

Now what was.

At this point in time , the moment

Becomes history

At this point in time

A new born, just became old

At this point in time

A hello,

Is now a date

At this point in time

An egg

Just became a chick

At this point in time,

The rich, remains rich


So many things can change in the blink of an eye

Babies born, babies creep, babies grow, babies die.

This moment, the now, waits on no man

It comes, it goes, and it makes changes

It loves, it hates, and it crashes many places

This point in time mocks goals and tramples dreams

But some wait on this point for an opportunity to beam


What will you do with this point in time?

Will you save a life, will you commit a crime?

Will you learn something new?

Or wisdom passes you?

This point will never come back no matter how hard you try

Because the moment this point is born, the moment this point will die.
