The Time Being - Poem by Tony Jolley

It hit me the moment you said it:

“…For the time being...”

It was so much more than just ‘for now’.
It spoke of life:
Life in the being.

The Be-ing.

Not doing.

No-one ever says:
“For the time doing”


In the end,
Time is all we have.

Time is for being.
Our whole lives are simply
