The Second Hand Opinion


In life, time is irrelevant.

It takes nine months to bring new life to the world,
Yet in a moment it can be stolen from us.
You may work for something your entire life
To find that someone younger has taken it.

What is age anyway?
Does it make you wiser...
More important...
Better?

No, time is indeed irrelevant.

In 365 days, the Earth fully orbits the sun.
In 90 days, there is a season change.
In 24 hours, the Earth completes a single rotation.
In 1 hour, we can lose who means the most to us.

In which period of time does our life change most?

    This poem is completely and utterly fantastic. Being a story writer, not poems, I am absolutely amazed that you're able to write like this. I recently told my friend my favourite poem, but I now stand corrected. This is my favourite. I love, love, love this poem. Congratulations on being so talented.

    Very thought provoking, although I think it is missing the poetic tone, but the content of this piece is i think its strongest point.

    Great idea

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf

Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
