Time....

And just like that life drifts by
one day at a time
subtly slowly
pilfering a handful of grains each second, each minute, each hour
praying we don't notice
-we don't-
countless grains parted with
willingly nonchalantly eagerly foolishly
beliving in its never ending supply

Yet what is the wisdom of awareness?
for the tighter we hold on the faster they flee our clenched fists
taking us with or without our consent
further and further away from the shore

Hey Aisha, thanks for the heads up. I "think" I may have fixed the problem. Whenever you happen to be in the area (doesn't that sound cool?), could you leave another comment and let me know if you still get one of those 'evil' email messages? Thanks a whole bunch!!! :o)

There is no wisdom in awareness we will still be lazy and not make the most of our life.

WOW! Great poem. I don't know, there may be one or two people that might apply some wisdom to their awareness.

I always hold out hope!
