Time is a mystery. Moments that pass, but stay in our memories. Things that might seem meaningless as the time can burden us in the future.

Caught in a warp of timeUnaware of the past or futureLike a dead butterflyWith no knowledge of its past beauty

Perhaps time will start againTo end the infinite lethargyA period with no start or endBut just an ongoing monotony

For isn't time just a collection of passing momentsOne that comes and then just endsTo be followed by yet another

Couldn't I look back at my lifeAnd pluck out the moments that seem a burdenOr for that matter just look aheadAnd put in the ones I desire

And isn't love the height of joyA never ending momentA feeling we all desireBut lost in between the start and the end

Why do we give up on our chance of loveA moment that may never come againWhy do we chase for thingsThat take away the moments that really matter

A moment of joy and happinessTo look your lover in the eyeAnd see the magnificence of the universe

    Nicely put. If one believes that they can do good deeds in this moment in time, then one has indeed created the future by doing only good deeds.

    Very introspective. We truly hold the future in our hands.What is gone is gone forever. I like how you put it.

    Time is so powerful more than one could ever imagine… There maybe times a moment repeats itself in diverse way.

    Beautiful poem

  • miraj on Feb 25, 2009

    Wonderful just wonderful,this poem oozes with insight and wisdom,but I have difficulty in understanding why it attrracted so less readers.Your mind is such a fertile one that has the power to change the life of anyone forever.Time,Space,and Causation are the three limitations that act as the barrier to reach the infinite and achieve it.The message of this poem is profound and should beread by everyone.

    my deepest respect and gratitude,Vikram

    Walk in beauty change the world.
