There Once Was A Time - Poem by Tim Kimball
Along that cobblestone airstrip,
Which once had been speeding for takeoff,
Now Rumbles amongst the
Smooth, yet with rough impact.
As you move through life,
In your salient gaze,
You remember back to a time,
When you ruled your world;
Now, the voice in back of your head keeps you company,
And you don’t mind it one bit.
Fall on your knees,
And pray to a god,
That provides your invisible confidence;
Put it there with the rest of your idolatry,
And remind yourself of gang rapes of your soul
It all goes much too fast.
Write down in your crimson-based journal,
The spillage of blood amongst your
Of various personalities.
The cost of riding
On your much-traveled
Gets more expensive each day;
Oh, by the way,
Just for today,
Let me get my way.
Let go of your old memories,
Make room for the new;
Don’t stick with the way you thought,
Move forward, and remember, remember,
So, you may learn from past mistakes.
