Time To Leave - Poem by Ivan Brooks Sr

Time will speed bye everyday
As it drives youthfulness away
Time works fine by the book
Tripping on the ways we live
Time takes away opportunities
But is yet void of immunities
It's like we don't deserve it
Yet time cannot be dealt with
So call her the unseen enemy
She heads the great aging army.

Time is very much aggressive
And yet so very much abrasive
She claws evilly away at beauty
Making her sad and very empty
Wrinkled, useless and very old
Left only with stories to be told
They say time waits on no man
So please try if you think you can
Choose now or never to believe
Time is here, I'll pack and leave.
