Time's Sultan Of Doom - Poem by Kurt Philip Behm

If you live long enough
you can outgrow everything
even uncertainty and doubt

As the road fades behind you
and memories compress
giving you a final way out

Taking you into a magical land
between two worlds where you
float in-between

One where you struggled and questioned yourself
and one made of wishes
and dreams

All choices abandoned and willed to the past
the either-or the most cryptic
of tombs

As you travel within and beyond just yourself
all past futures
—time's sultan of doom

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April,2018)
