Set your pace

care to slow down?
maybe just a bit
strides off pace
strain adjustments
keep in step or
step out of bounds
listen, its rhythm
focus the reverberation
settle your time.


Living to die

life will be the death of me.
it’s simple.
life degrades upon conception.
the count down commences.
whittle what we may in
what we think, feel and be,
but time holds no exceptions.
the expenditure of time
influences its duration.
investments in pleasure
or pain doesn’t matter,
it’s of the same origin.
i will remember birth
as i will death.
