An Unwritten Truth

Time stands still for no man
Stop the train and I want to get off
If I can't be anything more
Then let me scold and scoff

Your pretentious pretensions
Pause and place me inbetween
Take your dreams and nightmares
I see the truth there in your gleam

Let me off at the next stop please
Just let me debark from this strife
I have no need of solicitations
From the perpetrators in my life

Just back away from your misgivings
Keep them for yourself
I have no use for falsehoods
Put away your book about you, back upon the shelf

    Let me off at the next stop...sometimes you have to let go. It is not all about you. I love this work.

    the freedom is a choice
    your choice to be on board or off board, with love and respect when u hold that in heart than u can say i am free man that train is not your choice and the destination is not what you hope /nice penned piece

    first of all not surprising great poem, nicely penned as always, the world is filled and full of miss givings but even miss givings can be good givings depending on the light its shown in, love this piece enjoyable read

    time really is a kind of misgiving.who wouldnt like to get rid of it.
    i ve said thousand times, Time stops i want to get off.but it never listens to me.so nothing to do with it, let the misgiving goes.
    this might be an unacceptable truth.

    The last line says it all really, can I use that for some one I know without you suing me? But seriously I think ego invents the fear of time as something that is a threat to our security, that we are not permanent therefore not really special in the grand design, ok Ill put that book away

    In the circumstances of the poem I would want the world to stop and get off from her dreams and nightmares so I think I'll go and read your happy new baby poem again...cheers

    yeah, time will always stand for no man. It'll never care about no man. cunningly, we can't stop it for keep running, but time can stop us from keep running, when we get dying
