Isolated In Time Poem by Tony Avila Sampson

Isolated In Time

Rating: 4.9

No rhythm, no rhyme,
death, sets you apart,
isolated in time,
when it's time to depart;

Darkest of all dark,
when life's abated,
why's death a question-mark?
Your flesh, isolated;

When the black hole's near,
and it pulls you in,
feel the dark cold fear,
you're on a downward spin,

and you can't get out,
in time, frozen be,
trust your prays, have no doubt,
and set your spirit free.

I actually had to listen to this as well as reading it, only then I got the drift of it. An optimistic poem. Well written. Congratulation! ! !

'No rhythm, no rhyme, death, sets you apart, isolated in time, ' the first three lines of this poem are quite profound to meditate upon, before the separation of 'when it's time to depart; ' with the finality of no choice developed in the pathos of the final lines.
