Rookie - 40 Points (Earth)

Now Then - Poem by Egal Bohen

That
Which in temporary state
Prevails
But for a second
Or
Its fraction
Midst this sea of mulitudous forms
Endures forever
-
Our minute lives
So small
Extended
Locked into Time
Preserved
Appended
Unseen
But there as in a dream
-
Times speed
Dictates
Our life
Our state
That frontier
That does not wait
We cannot go back
Through the gate
For all that is
Is on the Line
Unstoppable
Essential
Motion
Kno wn
As
Time
