Time Vessel

Photo by SnaggleTooth 2009

Sands drain to the lower glass,
I'm reminded of the past,
All I'd thought would be different.
The gears of time burn
But much does not change.
Names, faces, people,
How they affect me.
How to get through a tough day.
Always fighting to stay afloat.
Don't lose the paddle to the boat.
Thought I'd be somewhere else by now.
So tempting to toss away
Start anew, pack light,
But the anchors hold.
Tho I chomp the line-
Dream of better times...

Snaggle, this poem left me feeling so melancholy...

Beautifully expressed.

Wow, Snaggle -- that poem really touched me. Beautiful, heartfelt, and poignant. "All I thought would be different..." and "how to get through a tough day..." Yes, it's important to keep hold of our paddles and to keep paddling even when our muscles are darned sore.
