week 635 ~ I wish it had not happened in our time

with 2 comments

I wish it had not happened in our time
this pathway isn’t one we’d ever choose
but we are on it regardless of whose
nightmare valley boxed us in we can’t climb
out by sheer will stuck in a pantomime
of the life we were living when our muse
had free reign it does no good to accuse
while mourning hapless souls lost in their prime
so we trudge on and go nowhere staying
safely home as more lost days trickle by
redrawing roadmaps as music playing
evaporates and make us want to cry
out in frustration as patience fraying
releases fading hopes in one long sigh

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” said Frodo.

me-23jump ahead to the edge of now
lean forward teeter the abyss
beckons but catch your balance this
is not your time to fall allow
fear to recede breathe this is how
we will get through believe defer
the nightmare won’t last forever
we will find some moments of good
-ness moments of grace where we’ve stood
our ground staring down the future
