“Time Flies” – Makati, 22 December 2016

look at
the time:
i must
fly.

not a
moment
to lose
nor a
second
to spare
as the
minutes
tick by
and life
demands
to be
lived
full throttle.

but
my mind
says pause;
my heart
says stop:
what’s the
hurry,
what’s the
rush;
why the
sound and
fury,
why pass
it all
by?

in the
breakneck race
to get
ahead
we fail
to see
to hear
to taste
to feel
to live
the small
moments
that make
it all –
life
love
lust
loss
longing –
worth it;
more’s the
pity.
