A Chance


A comment
A moment
A spark which is soon unchangeable
Part of the past
The past, history
The story that weaves through eternity
Encompassing all, all that has been done
We study it to learn,
To prepare in the present for the fast coming future
The future that is already now becoming the past
It slides and glides forward
Sometimes quickly, sometimes slowly,
But constantly forward
It does not stop
Actions that flow and meld into one
Building and affecting time
A comment
A moment
A chance to make history
