“You will never ‘find’ time for anything. If you want time, you must make it.” Charles Buxton

Dare I Look Forward?

A hundred years passed in an hour,
dare I look forward to another
while the day empties of its hours
as the moon begins its vigil.

Dare I look forward to another,
even now remaining passive
as the moon begins its vigil
of silvered light over my brow.

Even now remaining passive
in the face off a new language,
of silvered light over my brow,
making strange the words spoken.

In the face of a new language,
while the day empties of its hours,
making strange the words spoken,
a hundred years passed in an hour.
